I used Task Manager (Windows 7, 64-bit) to dump the memory of Chrome processes.
Unfortunately, attempting to dump a 32-bit process using the (64-bit) Task Manager will generate nonsensical memory dumps.
If I did use Task Manager (64-bit) to generate a dump of a 32-bit process, is there a way to convert the already-done memory dump so that it will be properly analyzed?
Also, if you have full memory dump available, can a person re-create processes and programs running before crash occurred?
Edit: It seems that many people are confused of my intention:
I already created memory dumps of 32-bit Chrome processes using Windows Task Manager (64-bit). Then I came to read articles that say this will create a corrupted version of memory dump.
What I am wondering is, can the dump ever be read properly with these dumps?
And also the second question.
What do I mean corrupted?
From one of the supplied links:
If you capture a dump with a tool that captures 64-bit dumps you will still get a memory dump, but you will get a memory dump of the syswow64 which means that a lot of extensions like sos and psscor2 won’t be able to read the data. Some things may still work but it is very limited and you might get errors or erroneous call stacks etc.
