Crash Dump Analysis Poster v1.1 (HTML version)

Here is an HTML version of Crash Dump Analysis Poster with hyperlinks. Command links launch WinDbg Help for corresponding topic. If you click on !heap, for example, WinDbg Help window for that command will open. In order to have this functionality you need to save source code of the following HTML file below to your disk and launch it locally.

http://www.dumpanalysis.org/CDAPoster.html

Your WinDbg Help file must be in the default installation path, i.e.

C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows\debugger.chm

If you installed WinDbg to a different folder then you can simply create the default folder and copy debugger.chm there.

I keep this HTML file open locally on a second monitor and found it very easy to jump to an appropriate command help when I need its parameter description.

This HTML poster was created and edited in Notepad.

I’m working on the second version and will announce it as soon as it is ready.

    Looks like it works only in IE. Firefox shows ‘mk: isn’t associated with any program’ error.

    I briefly googled the topic and found (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol) that associating protocol requires adding a path to the program into certain registry key.

    But IE opens the links itself, without any program, with no specified key in registry. And opening IE on link in Firefox is not a good solution for me :)

    Please, drop me a line if you know the solution.

    Now the new version 2.0 is posted that uses online MSDN docs. No need to copy HTML locally :-) Please give it a try
