Minidump Cheat Sheet
Problem Description:
How do I create an adsdump*.gz file for a specific error?
Solution:
Create registry entries named MINIDUMPERROR, MINIDUMPFILE, and MINIDUMPLINE in the ADS registry location of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Advantage\Configuration.

MINIDUMPERROR will be type REG_DWORD and contain the value from the Error_Code field from the ADS_ERR.ADT Advantage error log. MINIDUMPFILE will by type REG_SZ or String Value and contain the value from the ADS_Source field from the same record in the ADS_ERR.ADT Advantage error log. MINIDUMPLINE be type REG_DWORD will contain the value from the Src_Line field from the same record in the ADS_ERR.ADT Advantage error log.

Example:

Name Type Data
MINIDUMPERROR REG_DWORD 7020
MINIDUMPFILE REG_SZ LOGIN.C
MINIDUMPLINE REG_DWORD 5819

After the registry settings are entered, it will be necessary to restart ADS for them to take effect. The next time this error event happens, the adsdump*.gz will be created. These registry entries will need to be removed once the adsdump*.gz is created.
