Each time I run the Windows Phone 8 emulator in Visual Studio 2012, I get a BSOD with the message PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I cannot seem to locate where this logged so I can see which device is causing the error.

Also, it should be noted I am running Windows 8.1 on a Macbook Air using Bootcamp. The Bootcamp drivers I tried to install after the fact, but kept getting Boot Camp requires that your machine is running Windows 7 yet the drivers here state they support Windows 8.1

  • PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA is usually a driver error (or hardware failure). What version of boot Camp are you using? Also see Where does Windows 8 store user-mode crash minidumps? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 18 '14 at 17:22
  • Confirm your hardware is listed in the article you linked to. – Ramhound Mar 18 '14 at 18:29
  • copy the folder C:\Windows\Minidump to the desktop, zip it and upload the zip (cloud service) and post a link here. – magicandre1981 Mar 18 '14 at 18:52
  • where are the dumps? – magicandre1981 Mar 21 '14 at 19:15
