DumpFile

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl

Data type

Range

Default value

REG_EXPAND_SZ

Path

%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP

Description

Specifies the location of the recovery log file. If the system stops abnormally, and the value of the CrashDumpEnabled entry is either 1 or 2, Windows 2000 copies the contents of system memory to the recovery log file.

If you change the value of this entry, Windows 2000 does not move any existing recovery log files. Instead, the next time the system stops abnormally, it creates a recovery log file in the new location.

This entry stores the value of the Dump File text box under Write debugging information in System in Control Panel.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, use System in Control Panel. Click the Advanced tab, then click Startup and Recovery. Below Write debugging information, in the Dump File text box, enter the location of the log file.

Activation method

To make changes to this value effective, you must restart Windows 2000.

Note

To change the value of this entry, you must be an administrator of the computer.
