    Unfortunately I can`t read your mindumps, because you are on a Windows 2000 sp4 machine, while I am on a Windows XP machine.

    However, all is not lost.

    Go HERE and follow this quick tutorial.

    You can then copy and paste your results here.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    Thank you. You have to have the same os that the log files were created on in order to debug them?

    Yes, that`s about the top and bottom of it.

    Windows 2000 sp4 use a completely different set of symbols, and that`s why I can`t use them.

    That`s strange because this is what I get when I try to read your minidumps.

    Hi,

    Mircosoft does not provide the symbol for the latest version of ntoskrnl of W2K SP4 and Microsoft provide other symbols such as win32sys. However most of the stack trace executes within windows kernel. Without the kernel symbol it is very hard to understand the stack trace. Microsoft provides the W2K kernel symbole of the previous version of SP4 (ie the version at 2004), I have no problem to format the stack trace of SP4 for the patch level at 2004 and the latest version is at May 2005. If you have the full memory dump, the windows kernel symbol is included in the dump. Hence it resolves the symbol problem.
