I hope this is the right place to ask this question:
I would like to trigger a crash dump for a 64 bit Win 7 box that is crashing when an app calls GetOpenFilename. I thought that Dr. Watson could be used and found a reg entry that configures it. But there do not appear to be any files found when the 64 bit Win 7 box is searched using "DrWatson.exe".
So...what do I do next?

I read the article on full user-mode dumps and don't see where my app crash fits in to this scenario. The WER dialog never appears. During the call to GetOpenFilename the app just disappears either before the Open dialog is shown or a very short time afterward.
Thanks for your input,
