Log files can be a valuable in understanding and analyzing unexpected program behavior. It's also recommended to allow Microsoft Windows to generate User-mode crash dumps. This can simplify debugging, particularly if hardware or general Windows issues are affecting program behavior.
Enabling User-mode Dumps requires Windows 7 or higher. To enable, configure the following registry setting:
HKEY\_LOCAL\_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps
For more information, see the Microsoft page Collecting User-Mode Dumps.
