How To: Windows Crash Dumps

Hey All,

This is slightly OT but I think useful information for anyone developing plugins on Windows.

Fairly regularly I receive crash reports indicating problems with a plugin. Often I'll end up forwarding the crash dump to the plugin's developer but too often I get the impression they haven't archived the appropriate PDB files etc.. to be able to make sense of it.

So I wrote an article explaining how all this works. It's almost trivial to setup but it needs to be done at build time - not later when the crash report comes in. A couple of simple steps now makes working with crash reports later so much easier...

I hope someone finds this useful (and let me know if I've missed anything).
