I have a problem with an application we've made that sometimes crash with a StackOverflowException in some .NET code.
Unfortunately, the app is partly unmanaged and partly managed, and for some reason the problem only exhibits itself on non-developer machines.
My current plan is to use WINDBG (part of the Debugging Tools for Windows from Microsoft), installed on the testers machines, I can get WINDBG to trap the creation of the exception in question.
As such, I can do the following:
sxe ld:mscorlib g .loadby sos clr !stoponexception -create System.StackOverflowException g
Unfortunately, since this problem only crops up every other day, and only every 50+ execution or so, I'd rather avoid having the testers having to type in all or part of this for every time they start this app.
I tried placing the above commands in a text file and created a shortcut for them like this:
"...\windbg.exe" -c "$<c:\windbg.txt" -o "...\app.exe"
This starts the WINDBG debugger, but unfortunately fails with this error message:
0:000> sxe ld:mscorlib 0:000> g Command file caused an implicit wait Command file execution failed, HRESULT 0x80004005 "Unspecified error"
g is not allowed in such a startup script.
Is it possible to do what I want? Can I automate this, or do I just have to prepare a batch file or something that uses autohotkey that does this?
