    debugger.chm - Windbg Help File

    Pranav mentioned this file in a post and I felt the immediate need to comment because I did not know of its existence for several months after first learning Windbg several years ago.

    Error - BleepingComputer.com

    There is a help file that comes with Windbg (located in the same directory) called debugger.chm.

    It is probably one of the most underused and mostly unknown sources of information for Windbg itself as well as BSOD information in general.

    It contains every Windbg command and every bugcheck (STOP ERROR) - or at least those know at the time of publication.

    To look up a bugcheck - bring up debugger.chm, click on "Search" and enter the bugcheck - full or abbreviated.

    Example: 0x0000000a can be entered as 0xa -- leading zeroes are not required.
