AlwaysKeepMemoryDump

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I realised that my Windows 7 deleting the memory.dmp file, so I cannot analyze it. I found that a "AlwaysKeepMemoryDump" option should be set to one in the Registry. But, it should be in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl I have no "CrashControl" item. So do I just go into Control, create a "CrashControl" folder (or whatever it is), then a "AlwaysKeepMemoryDump" DWord underneath it and set it to 1?
Thanks

Okay, I restarted Windows, went back into the RegEdit, and then the CrashControl appered. There was no AlwaysKeepMemoryDump in it, so I created it as "DWord (32-bit)", and then changed its value from 0 to 1. Then I restarted Windows.
Is this okay? Will Windows keep the dump file now?
