Willy ... this is pretty straight forward and not difficult at all ... if you are not getting access to the .dmp file, you will need to take ownership of it .. Take Ownership Shortcut ... follow the directions in this tutorial.... right click on the .dmp file and select take ownership...

I have done this.
And again... the results remain the same. Access denied.

That is some sort of edit to the registry, with no explanation of its details.

I'd asked if it results in anything different from the method that I used.
If I'm getting ownership properly without it, then I won't need a shortcut.


Thanks

It is a very handy handy shortcut. It does modify the registry; however it is harmless and completely reversible. For more information, read this: Context Menu - Take Ownership - Vista Forums

I don't see the point of modifying the registry, if I can simply take ownership of files using the tools already built into Windows 7.
I believe this is what I've done.
No one has said anything yet about that method that I used.

I thought you just stated the method you used resulted in no access? If so, trying it again is not going to change the result.

The shortcut method is very safe in that you are not messing with permissions, which, if you do not know what your are doing, can necessitate a repair install.

So, if what you are doing is not working, try an approved method that is perfectly safe. If you choose not to follow advice, we cannot assist you. We would not suggest something that could harm your system.

I did.
So... I need some help in figuring out what is wrong. That's what I'm asking for.
I'm not asking for an alternate method.

Obviously. But... I haven't said that I was doing it repeatedly.

Again, I'm not asking for a work-around.
I'm explaining what I did. If it didn't work, then something is wrong, and I need some help from those that know Windows 7, in figuring it out.

Tews definitely knows windows and knows it very, very well. Just look at his reputation. He gave you the correct and easy way to solve your problem.

Please understand that Tews and everyone here are volunteers. No one here receives one penny for assisting others. We do it because we enjoy helping others. In my case, I enjoy passing along to others what someone helped me learn.

If you want to learn Windows in depth, there are some excellent books on the subject. And they can be found at Amazon. However, it will take you a while to read and understand even one. But if you want an in depth analysis of what you tried, you need to start reading.

You have a perfectly safe and easy solution presented to you. This method was written by Brink, one of the administrators here. Check his reputation.

Have a good day and happy computing.

I would say you should pick which is the more important of your dilemma's, if it's the knowledge of why, then you have been given a suggestion for that.

If it is how to fix your access denied problem, you have been given a suggestion for that as well.

Pick the one you want most and let us know your results, but if you had just tried the original take ownership suggestion, you would be much farther along than you are now.

I appreciate that, but that is not what I'm asking for yet.

I don't see the need to modify the registry, when Windows apparently has the capability built right in, to take ownership of a file.
Am I misunderstanding this? ... it is built into Windows, correct?

I know this. I don't know why you are telling me.

Ok.
I thought that it was something simple, since I found it as described.
Why it is not working as I expected, is why I came here.... hoping somebody would know, or would have experienced it.

I appreciate the effort, but that is not what I asked for.
