|−|=== Introduction === |+|
|−|With the advent of the KDE 4.7.0 release, it is possible to produce usable backtraces for Windows after experiencing a crash in a KDE application. |+|
|−|At the moment, the following description is only valid for the Microsoft compiler, if somebody could extend this to the MinGW compilers, I would be very glad. |+|
|−|=== Step by step === |+|
|−|This assumes you have installed KDE with the kdewin-installer, selected the msvc2010 compiler and experience a crash in one of the KDE applications. |+|
|−|* rerun the installer and install all debug packages for (binary) packages you installed. |+|
|−|* for msvc2010 (Visual Studio compiler): set the environment variable _NT_SYMBOL_PATH to the location of your KDE installation. To do this, open a cmd.exe console window and type the following (replace "C:\Program Files (x86)\KDE-4.7.0" with the location where you installed KDE): |+|
|−|<pre>C:\Program Files (x86)\KDE-4.7.0> set _NT_SYMBOL_PATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\KDE-4.7.0"</ pre> |+|
|−|* try to regenerate the crash by running the program from inside this console window:<pre>C:\Program Files (x86)\KDE-4.7.0> bin\kmymoney.exe</ pre> |+|
|−|* copy the backtrace from DrKonqi into a file (save as a file currently crashes drkonqi itself) and append it to the bug report. |+|
