Re: and yet another suggestion
@ Mike - assuming for the moment that "Usual Causes" will be left out -- is it possible to give the user the capability to input a URL somewhere (similar to what we now have for DRT URL) and then have the app use that URL + a "hard-coded" tag that the app would assemble (for lack of a better term)?
on my system contains:
Where the contents of %x1%%x2%
would be something like:
- the app would perform a one-time read of %x1%%x2%
- SET x3
of file %x1%%x2%
- SET <bugcheck>
= bugcheck only, i.e., parms 1-4 NOT included
- when the BugCheck Info:
line is encountered while writing 98, 97, other (??), substitute %x3%<bugcheck>
The hyper-linked output (with <bugcheck>
to be populated by the app) =
The one area that I have not given thought to is where to obtain the bugcheck info
BugCheck Info: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b)
We could create a SQL file at carrona.org containing 2 fields -
- Bugcheck Description
Such a table could easily be maintained at carrona.org via PHP screens or direct SQL DB editing and write a text file to - http://www.carrona.org/drivers/files
I estimate such a text file to be <10k in size.
It is possible for PHP to strip off/ carve out the info needed (bugcheck, bugcheck desc) from a carrona.org HTML page, update a SQL file or simply bypass SQL and write directly to a text file. I think downloading then parsing a 1 MB+ HTML page at the local level (by the app during runtime) would significantly increase the app's run-time and would therefore be counter-productive.

I am fairly certain that the attachment to that post came from carrona.org; however, I am unable to find the page ATM. I'm attaching a copy of the attachment to this post.
Personally, I don't like the idea of including "Usual Causes" in the dump output summary as (1) the info is one click away; (2) it may lead to confusion by the OP (seeing something different than what the BSOD Analyst is having the OP focus on; (3) if given the option, I myself would not use it
Please know, Mike, that the above are simply my suggestions and initial thoughts. You obviously know your code better than anyone. :dsmile:
Also, this is my 1st attempt at comment after reading this entire thread after a long day in Philadelphia, so apologies in advance if there are typos or other mistakes in logical flow.
