how to view BB Simulator dmp in Windows

There are a number of different DMP files of course generated by BB Simulator.  My focus at this time is on the SD Card itself.


Steps I have taken :


in simulator...

1) Simulate -> Change SD Card..

2)  Add File -> specify location (generated file temp-sdcard.dmp)


As noted in another post...install WinImage  (winma81.exe) as it was confirmed this version worked.

1)  File -> Open -> specify location of .dmp file - failed : Error Reading

2)  Mount Image -> failed as well


How do you open the dmp file to view contents?  Ideally I would like to create a DB through SQLite in Windows, then copy it to the BB Simulator.  Then copy it back out of the Simulator so I can view the data in Windows.


Any other suggestions would be gladly appreciated.


Thanks in advance,

Re: how to view BB Simulator dmp in Windows

To answer my own question - why not just 'Add Folder' using the simulator instead of file, this will allow you to view the objects on your file system - therefore not needing to move files out of the dump file.

Welcome.  Smiley Happy


I think using the directory is an excellent option and one that I use when testing SD Card related applications!


Can you mark this Thread as solved?
