Crash Dump Analysis Patterns (Part 245)

For completeness, we introduce Module Stack Trace analysis pattern, which is a tack trace with module (or components) and offsets into their address range. Offsets distinguish it from Collapsed Stack Trace. We see only modules names in case of No Component Symbols or Unrecognizable Symbolic Information. Sometimes, we also have exported functions present with resulting offsets reduced in value but still large. This is a case of Reduced Symbolic Information. Such emerging symbols may form Incorrect Stack Trace frames. On some platforms Module Stack Traces become Truncated Stack Traces because a debugger is not able to reconstruct the stack trace. The following stack traces shows Module Stack Trace fragment for PhotosApp_Windows (and also frames with exported functions for ntdll, combase, twinapi_appcore):
