Is somebody working with ADPlus? Do I have to install Debugging Tools for Windows every time on the problematic machine?

I copied this files adplus.exe, adplus_old.vbs, adplusext.dll, adplusext.dll, adplusmanager.exe, adplusmanager.exe.config to troubleshoot "hangs" and "crashes" (from Applications) but it’s not working. Will this work? If not do you have a other better Tool?

I tried Debug Diagnostic Tool v1.1 and a MS employ told us that this Tool is not supported under Windows 7.

Fairly certain that the entire kit is needed... I have installed the Debug Diagnostic on Win7, and set a rule successfully, but unfortunately the darn thing never crashed again.

Remember there is a difference between supported, and actually able to function..... I would test it if you have a problem machine, to see if it gathers data once you create the rule....

Hi johnb6767

Nice to see you again, hope you are fine? By contrast I was success and got a dump file.
So I’m testing the dump created by Debug Diagnostic.
Now I want to try the advanced commands in WinDbg and get the error No export (command name) found for !vm, !thread, !process, !process 0 0, !deadlock. Do you know why?

Is the tool actually counting the crashing instances?
Guide to Performance: Optimization & Monitoring

Nowadays, monitoring is a mixture of tools, systems, and codes—making it a very complex process. And with this complexity, comes variables for failure. Get DZone’s new Guide to Performance to learn how to proactively find these variables and solve them before a disruption occurs.

Ok, if you are just trying to look at the dumps, you can  bring them to another machine and load them from File>Load Crash Dump. Make sure you ahve the symbols set to a Symbol Server, instead of a locally extracted package.....

Debug Diagnostic tool is mainly to monitor a running app, and automate the process of analyzing the dumps. Once you create a rule, it will 'count' the instances it has detected by the running debug service, and once you see that it has detected some instances, you can right click the rule>Analyze".....

Where does this all fit in with adplus.vbs? You are trying to use those without having the Debugging tools on each machine?
