Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll need the WinDbg tool and the symbols for Windows. You can read up more in this MSKB article. But it’s fake, WinDbg install just doesn’t work. It’s better to stay away from Windows and use a real operating system.

    No.

    If there was, at least some of us wouldn't have jobs.

    No easy way. We have all had to do it in the past. Let's hope it's a one time deal. Reading dumps can make you lose sleep. You have my sympathy.
