.hdmp File Format

While adding an attachment in Outlook 2013, suddenly my Outlook got crashed. I did some research to find the reasons and came across a file “.hdmp”. I am using Windows 8.1.

Can anyone help me out with the details of this file? Is a developer file?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A file with the HDMP file extension is a Trouble Report file.

Some HDMP files may instead be Windows Heap Dump files.
Windows Heap Dump files can be opened using Microsoft Visual Studio.

Hi Shweta,
The .hdmp files are basically created in Windows XP/Vista. HDMP stands for Windows Heap Dump file.
