Are there any tools to dump the running application from memory in Windows 7?

can i still be able to run that file? –  abmv Jun 1 '10 at 10:12
    
@abmv: "run" as in .. start the dump? or do you ask if the dumping process stops the process? if it is the latter: dumping the memory does not stop the process. –  akira Jun 1 '10 at 10:41
    
well i'm looking for something like PROCDUMP32 –  abmv Jun 2 '10 at 16:56
    
@abmv: well, that is not what you asked for in the first place. a good tool for reverse engineering is "ida pro" (hex-rays.com/idapro). –  akira Jun 2 '10 at 19:08
    
i guess the word dump was misleading thanks for you reply –  abmv Jun 3 '10 at 7:02

Simplest is probably procdump from SysInternals.

The Debugging Tools for Windows gives more advanced options (e.g. automatically dump the process on certain conditions).

You can use adplus -crash -p <process id> -o <place to put the dump> from command line if the process you want to dump is crashing at some point. see here
