Did not know where to post this. I am trying to open a dump filed in WinDbg and keep getting this message and am not quiet sure how to proceed

 

 

I was also following the directions here https://www.sysnative.com/forums/bsod-kernel-dump-analysis-debugging-information/7627-register-windbg-dump-files-file-associations.html. I had no luck in completing this either. I had it typed in the cmd prompt as administrator as              C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x86 windbg.exe -IA        and kept getting a message that amounted to "you don't know what you're doing"

Type/paste these 2 lines exactly as written:

 

cd\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x86

 

windbg.exe -IA

 

You have to change the directory (folder) first, then issue the command for file association.

No - leave it where it is and run the 2 CMD commands from an Admin CMD prompt.
