Creating a dump file

If reporting a protection violation you might be asked to provide a dump ( .dmp) file. To produce a dump file you use the Unexpected Error dialog box that is displayed when a protection violation occurs. Unless requested by Micro Focus SupportLine, leave the dump setting as Normal (recommended), click Dump, then specify a location and name for the dump file. Once the dump file has been written you can email it to Micro Focus SupportLine.

You may also be asked to provide a log file created by the Consolidated Tracing Facility (CTF) - a tracing infrastructure that enables you to quickly and easily produce diagnostic information detailing the operation of a number of Micro Focus software components.
