How to Collect User-Mode Dumps Using Windows Error Reporting (WER)

(Doc ID 1549028.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.5 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
Requires Windows 2008 or higher

Goal

When oracle.exe (or any Oracle process) terminates abnormally, an operating system crash dump may be required. This can be accomplished using ADPlus, Debug Diagnostic Tool (DebugDiag), or ProcDump. However, there may be occasions when these tools have side effects that are undesirable. In those cases, Windows Error Reporting (WER) can be implemented to capture the dump.
