Greetings, I could use a little help here. Been having BSODs a lot lately. Tried running the diagnostics tool, but...

I get the following exception when I try to run the tool:

************* Exception Text **************

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
For example:
< jitDebugging="true" />
When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Hi there!

Run the options in tools one by one and see if it works. Tell me which one is failing.

win 7 home 64, win vista 32, win xp pro 32, win 8 pro 64

Just wanted to report a bug.
My primary partition is in the c:\ drive. I ran the SF diagnostic tool from G:\doc\sftool.exe.
I tried looking on my desktop for the folder, but couldn't find it.
Then I realized it said it created a folder in the g:\...\myusername\desktop directory, which is actually in a different partition than my windows c:\ partition.

Might have been tough to find if I didn't have Everything installed. Note that the folder did not exist until I ran SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe.

I can not use this program, I keep getting "Error code 0x800700oE" i.e. Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.

Tried both with virtual memory set to automatic and 6000 MB. And tried compability mode, am on Win 8 x64.

Any ideas?

That's very strange. Check the MD5 checksum. It should be: 141550ba421755c1deac7541ef39a915
If not then the download is corrupted.

I can confirm that the checksum is: 141550ba421755c1deac7541ef39a915

I can not think of anyway to make this program work on my computer. A bit wierd yeah.

SF_Diagnostic_Tool not saving log

I've downloaded SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe to my windows 7 machine and run it as administrator. I get the series of "ok" dialog boxes and a final one saying the logs were saved to my desktop. However, I don't see any zip file on my desktop. I'm running windows 7 as a parallels vm which shares desktop with the host machine (a mac), but even searching through c:\users\xxx\Desktop I don't see the log file there..
