Colin I have now got this on all my machines but on this new laptop I think I may have slipped up somewhere because trying to open the test zip I get what is in the picture. its asking me for a file opener..

My other machine including the latest laptop are fine .

Is this just a matter of uninstalling the kit and do it again?

Looks like the. dump file association wasn't done correctly. Try setting it up again.

Just did Colin everything ok I entered the last paste into the wrong slot I think I might have to do it again on my new machine though because the test dump or any dump uses 7zip when opening the file/s. They still open but just with that extra step.

If the files are zipped John they will open with 7Zip/WinRar/WinZip etc as they haven't been extracted yet. If you download a set of logs, right click on them and open with 7Zip the dumps will then open with WinDBG automatically.

Ok Gav I have just reinstalled and it still will not open without me having to have 7 zip installed - the other machines all open with the grey screen and the file list (no 7 zip) . I suppose it is no big deal perhaps it is some HP software mucking me around.

I can live with it as this is really only my travel laptop the other machines are fine and used more than this one

Still a handy tool still though eh?

I've always opened them with 7Zip John to be honest, I don't know how they open any other way.

That is really odd then Gav as mine always open with the grey windows and the small white one.

I have picked an unanswered BSOD thread at random - hope the member doesn't mind and I have gone through the process that I do and I have attached snips of what I get in order of EXAMPLES you will see in black print. I just hope they come in the rode I attach them which is hardly ever but that's another story.

Thso process happens on all mymachine bar the new HP laptop there is never a 7 zip screen come up just what you see

After following all your instructions I have WinDbg installed properly with the symbol path and file associations, verified as working with your test file. However, when I attempt to open the .dmp file in my Windows\Minidump folder after a BSOD this morning, I get this WinDbg error dialog: "You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission." I get this error either when double-clicking the dmp file, or when trying to open it from within WinDbg (X64). I am using an administrator account on Windows 10 Pro x64 "RTM" (10240) with latest updates as of August 6th. Any advice would be appreciated!

Sounds like you are trying to open it from it's root location, C:\Windows\Minidump.

Try moving it to the desktop before opening.

It wouldn't even let me copy it, let alone move it. I don't have permission. I have tried booting into safe mode as Administrator and still I don't have permission to read/copy/relocate the .dmp file in C:\Windows\Minidump. I am able to open this folder and see the .dmp file in the Explorer window, but do not have permission to read/copy/open the .dmp file itself.
