Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack - Crash Dump Analyzer

This is probably one of the best tools, next to Lock Smith, in the Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset:


We are in the process of analyzing a bunch of MiniDump files from a system we just swapped an Asus motherboard in.


After each analysis it has become quite apparent that perhaps there is a bad memory stick in the system. ;)

Since our clients are on Desktop Operating System Software Assurance with the MDOP add-on for their systems we have access to this tool. It is a lot simpler to set up and get going than any other method out there.

Besides the DaRT one also receives some key virtualization rights for desktop operating systems! Software Assurance + MDOP for desktop OS is worth checking out.
