Error Sysmon on Windows Server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, everyone

    I have downloaded the latest Sysmon version from Microsoft. When I try to install it on Windows Server 2008, it displays an error about kernel.

    I have seen that Sysmon runs Windows 7 and higher. Is it not compatible with Windows Server 2008?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards

  • Hello

    I'm curious about why this is crashing. If you have a dump file that you would be willing to share could you contact me offline at syssite@microsoft.com.

    If this is the service crashing the dump file will be in

    C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\CrashDumps

    If sysmon.exe is crashing during install, the dump file will be at %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps

    If a dump file is not being generated, you can enable WER by creating the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps  registry key then creating a DWORD value called DumpType and setting this to 2 (no reboot required).
