I have a case open with Microsoft on a 2012 DC.  They want a dmp file.  I made a snapshot to include the VM memory.  I ran the vmss2core tool but can not get the dmp file to create. I also tried the -W8 option with the same results.  
I am able to create the vmss.core file using the -M option
 
 
 
 
C:\2012 issue>vmss2core_win.exe -W VM12S-DCTEST-Snapshot153.vmsn

How about taking the snapshot without memory by unchecking it during creation of snapshot?

I did not try that because MS wants to see what is in memory.
