MED-V: How to Configure the MED-V v1 Client to Generate a User Dump on an Exception


When the Virtual PC Engine, Workspace, or MED-V v1 Client crashes or encounters an exception when deployed in a MED-V v1 environment, there is no user dump created or a minidump listed in Windows Error Reporting.

This default behavior is by design. The client is not configured by default to generate dump files on unhandled exceptions.

There is an option to turn UEF (Unhandled Exception Filtering) on but it requires a modification to the registry on the MED-V client.

To enable UEF User Dump generation, please do the following:

1.) Open Registry Editor.

2.) Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Kidaro

3.) Create the following values (New – DWORD Value)

Name: DumpType
Data Type: dword
Value: 3ff

Name: GenerateDumpOnException
Data Type: dword
Value: 1

Name: WriteEventLogOnException
Data Type: dword
Value: 1

Name: DisplayMessageOnException
Data Type: dword
Value: 1

4.) Exit Registry Editor

5.) Restart the MED-V Client Service.
