The Common Language Runtime Minidump tool creates a file containing information that is useful for analyzing system problems in the runtime. This tool is invoked just before the Microsoft Dr. Watson tool (Drwatson.exe) when Microsoft Visual Studio wants to upload a minidump.

The following command creates a minidump file for the process with the identification number 12345 and saves the output in the file myDump.
