That error occurs because Windows is trying to execute the dump file.

Right click on any dmp file and click on Choose Default Program. In that window, click on Windows GUI symbolic debugger. Down under the list of programs, check the box to "Always use the selected program..."

You can also right click on a dmp file and choose "Open with" then select the debugger.

Be sure to setup your symbols path.

I use the following but your drive letter and folder name is your choosing.
Code:
 
D:\MS-Symbols;SRV*d:\ms-websymbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

Punt?

When do you get that message? It was running wasn't it? What happens when you right click on a dmp file and open with the debugger?

Will it start if you click on Windbg from the start menu? It should open with a blank panel. From there, click on File in the tool header then select Open Crash Dump and see if a dmp file will open from there.
