Windows vista and later has a simple way to configure windows error reporting to save user-mode crash dumps that can be retrieved and read easily here with these configurable options

Is there a similar solution in windows-xp? I know drwtsn32 is an option, I am looking more for alternatives. Hopefully one that still uses windows error reporting or crash handling.

I stumbled upon some good howto's for creating user dump files on windows xp here and its related pages. Basically you can hang onto a process until it crashes and then analyze the dump file.
