Finally, what everyone has been waiting for: Version 188.8.131.52 is ready for release.\n\nThis may be confusing to some. Why 184.108.40.206 after 0.9.9.x? Why not 220.127.116.11?\n\nA little background as to why the change was made from 0.9.9.x to 18.104.22.168 instead of 22.214.171.124:\n\nGoing back to the jcgriff2 app, the original scripts were developed by John Griffith (jcgriff2), and those scripts ran through .bat and .VBS scripts. Those were designed to obtain relevant information from the kernel debugger analyses. The relevant info chosen included that which John used in his blue screen analyses with the forums he worked in. Richard (niemiro), at John's behest, ported those scripts into a C++ application with the intent that they be available to all analysts. He began and did much of the important development so users had options for the output. Those were developed and used by many here up to version 126.96.36.199. \n\nAs some know, I was developing my own app with similar designs. I started the app more as a hobby, and then it became a necessity due to restrictions placed on the ability to obtain the app here on the forums I was initially working on to help users with BSODs. My app grew due to the necessity to train others in BSOD analysis. Eventually, I left those forums and joined here. Some were still using my app here, but from my perspective, it was nowhere near as effective as what John and Richard had accomplished here. There were some features that were different that people liked, though, so I spent a weekend rebuilding it to make it faster, more efficient, and to incorporate more options into it. I went as far as to say the redesign was version 2.0 of my own app (although, it probably still was closer to version 1.0 of the jcgriff2 app). \n\nDue to the features people liked in my app and the features that people liked in the jcgriff2 app, John, Richard, and I discussed a merging of the two apps and called them the Sysnative BSOD Apps. I designed a graphical interface for it, and the version number was dropped down to 0.9.0 since it was in a testing stage. Richard brought up the point that the new apps with all the options and the graphical interface were beyond the 188.8.131.52 jcgriff2 app, so after testing, we both agreed upon the 184.108.40.206 version number. And that is how we end up with the 2.0.0 version number.\n\n\nVersion 220.127.116.11: \n\nReadme:\n\nFirst Time Use:\n\nRun Install.exe to install the apps and setup the directory structure. You should run the Install.exe with administrative privileges if possible. If not, make sure to choose a directory that your local, non-administrative account has access to for installation. \n\nYou should also set up your Analysis Options, Header, Footer, Signature, Driver Update Header, Code Box, and Template formatting by choosing Change Settings through the graphical interface within SysnativeBSODApps.exe and then Save and Run the Apps.\n\nRunning the Apps:\n\nFile: \n\n\n\nOpen - Opens a previously saved file containing the apps settings.\nSave - Saves current settings to a file in use. If no file is in use, acts the same as Save As.\nSave As - Saves the settings to a file specified by the user and also does a quick save for the next run.\nRevert to Last Quick Save - Loads the most recently Quick Save settings.\nQuick Save - Saves current settings to a file. This is just a quick save feature to save settings if you want to use them in future runs.\n\n\nOptions:\n\n\n\nAlways On Top - Options to turn Always On Top on or off:\n\n\nWhen checked - The interface will always be on top of other windows \nunless minimized\nWhen not checked - The interface will hide behind an active window.\n\n\n\n\nSave and Run - Saves settings and then runs the apps; also loads forum settings before running the apps.\n\nHelp - Opens the Help .chm file.\n\n \nPlace the Sysnative.exe file in the same directory as the .dmps you want to analyze. Run the .exe (note: your antivirus software may think it is a virus, so you will probably have to add it to the exceptions to run it). The .exe file will create output directory for the .dmp files and analysis .txt files. In the output directory, a subdirectory with today's date and the time the .exe file was run will be created. That is where the output .txt files are. \n\n\nSee the help file for more information. You can find it in %userprofile%\\SysnativeBSODApps\\SysnativeBSODApps.chm or by clicking on Help at the top left corner of the SysnativeBSODApps interface after running the SysnativeBSODApps.exe application. \n\nIf for some reason the SysnativeBSODApps.chm file does not load properly and displays Navigation to the webpage was canceled, right click the .chm file, click Properties, within the General tab, click the Unblock button at the bottom of the section next to Security:\n\n\nYou will need:\n\nDownload and Install Debugging Tools for Windows\nMicrosoft .NET Framework 4 (Web Installer)\nVisual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)\n\n\nIf you are running XP, you will also need:\n\nWindows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools\n\nIf you are running the apps in Windows XP and need the apps to find the kd.exe path for you, you will have to run the apps as an administrator either by logging in with an administrator account or by using the run as option\n\n\n\nWhile you are at it, you may also want to install:\n\nVisual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)\nVisual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64)\nVisual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x86)\nVisual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x64)\nVisual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x64)\n\nto help with compatibility for programs, games, and other apps on your system. Make sure to install both the x86 and x64 versions for 64-bit Windows. Then install their updates through Windows Update.
