Command line version of ModuleRescue

Version: 1.0.2
Updated: 30.08.2006

CmdResc is the command line version of ModuleRescue tool. CmdResc can be used when it is necessary to generate all modules at once (while ModuleRescue can generate modules only one by one).

Command line options

cmdresc -d DumpName [-o OutputDir] [-w]
-d DumpName
Name of the dump file
-o OutputDir
Output directory (optional)
Overwrite existing modules (optional)

If -o is not specified, modules will be generated in the same directory with the dump.
If -w is not specified, existing modules will not be overwritten.

Supported operating systems

CmdResc works on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Error messages

If something fails during module generation process, CmdResc will report an error. The error description usually contains the reason of the error, sometimes together with Win32 error code. You can use Error Lookup utility (supplied with Visual Studio) to obtain more information about the error code.

Note: Generated modules cannot run correctly

Modules generated by CmdResc contain enough information to make debuggers believe that they match the given minidump and can be used to download symbols. At the same time, they do not contain valid executable code and cannot be used as substitutes for the real modules in situations not related to minidump debugging.

Note: Several modules with the same name

It is possible that a minidump can contain several modules with the same name. In that case CmdResc will generate only one module. Other modules can be generated manually using ModuleRescue.
