How to Create/Enable a Full Crash DUMP file in MapInfo Pro

Products affected: MapInfo Pro
 
When MapInfo Pro 11.0.1 was released we added a new functionality to generate a minidump file whenever a crash occurred. The minidump files generated and sent to us by customers are generally useful to pin point the origin of the crash and solve it by providing a fix for the cause of the crash.
In some cases, we get minidump files and information stored in them did not enable us to see a detailed view of the stack trace and hence findout what steps or code were being executed when the crash happened.
To try to solve these issues, we now support generating a full memory dump file so we have better chances of finding the original issue that caused a crash. This option can be enabled through the following environment variable "MI_FULLDUMP" with value 1.
