Hello Experts,

I am having difficulty scripting ProcDump to actively monitor/attach to a process and when the process terminates, crashes, or hangs to take a Full Dump and finally continue to listen in a loop for the next instance of the processes' start for ProcDump to attach/monitor etc...

I would like for the dumps of the process (a service) to be limited to 4 dumps and overwrite the oldest dump file at each dump exceeding the 4th dump.

Below are the command line switches I am using
cd D:\ProcDump\
START ""/min "procdump" -e -h -t -ma "SomeProcess.exe" -accepteula SomeProcessDump.dmp"

Thank you,
