Tweaking.com creating a dmp file each day!
« on: September 25, 2019, 05:55:42 PM »
I am using Tweaking.com to automatically run a Registry backup each day when the computer boots up in the morning.
It appears to be working just fine, however, I find a bunch of dmp files each week. (ie. C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\CrashDumps\TweakingRegistryBackup.exe(1).14420.dmp).
I don't know why it's doing this.
Could it have anything to do with the Event Viewer errors that I find several times a day under Applications?
Faulting application name: TweakingRegistryBackup.exe, version: 3.5.0.3, time stamp: 0x582f3b59
Faulting module name: MSVBVM60.DLL, version: 6.0.98.15, time stamp: 0x49b01fc3
Exception code: 0xc000041d
Fault offset: 0x000c9ba6
Faulting process id: 0x2338
Faulting application start time: 0x01d573d7a4efe316
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Tweaking.com\Registry Backup\TweakingRegistryBackup.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVBVM60.DLL
Report Id: ea4ec71c-a312-4d6a-b81a-bbb9386f807d
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:


Any ideas?

Is it still creating the registry back ups ?

Yes it is, however, the backup file is much much larger than the backup file was, when I was using Erunt to do automatic registry backups.
Does Tweaking registry backup, backup more than just the registry? Or is this very large file size an indication of a problem?

I've just checked what it does for me for the auto back up done when you open repairs and it's showing as 133.87MB

How does that compare to yours ?

I've just checked my Event Viewer and I'm getting the same error as you, so it's not just you.

Shane should see this when he reads the thread.

If I open the location that my backups are being saved, the size is 206 MB (216,522,595 bytes). This is much larger than the registry backup that Erunt saved. I have no problem with it as long as it is doing what it is supposed to do, I'm just wondering if the dmp files and Event Viewer errors have anything to do with this or not.

Well you've seen the size of the backup it creates on mine and I'm getting the same error as you.

Then size is not contributing to the two issues I have on my PC.
I hope someone can figure this out.

I've updated Shane that it also affects me, so hopefully he can come up with an answer.

It doesn't affect them from working as another member has recently restored with the registry backup and that sorted a few problems he had after running WR.

If the dump files become quite large, the free version of CCleaner will clear those.

https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

I normally have that option unchecked.
