  • dw.exe crash 1.0.5.3

    Whenever you press "shutdown" earlier than, while it counts down to shutdown. I get an error message on dw.exe/mappoint and the PC does not shutdown by itself. I have the config and skin at the default right now for testing purposes, same goes for the OS setup, only proper drivers and no funky appl. I dunno If the log will help out, cause it has to do with mappoint I think.

    DW.exe used to be a feedback tool used by Microsoft to analyze and develop fixes for instances of crashes on users' computers.

      it is set to 10 second delay, and that last option is checked! also it happens only if I'm playing music or I have it on the pause.

        From wikipedia:

        On modern computers, Dw.exe is the code name of a Microsoft tool called Dr. Watson, installed by programs like Microsoft Money, Office XP and some installations of Office 2003. [research by a Wikipedian and Microsoft paid support back most of this up.] Some bulliten board postings and help articles on computing.net indicate it to be the cause of many error messages predominantly when booting up the operating system. The solution is to delete dw.exe, and repair your Office installation. For Office XP, this requires the CD. For Office 2003, it does not.

        In computing, it is generally safe to delete a corrupt module, especially if the host application continues to run or regenerates the needed file.

        dw.exe is also called dw15.exe, and dw20.exe. The name change represents upgrades to the process. dw15.exe was found by one Wikipedian to be associated with MS Money. dw20.exe was found by this same Wikipedian to be associated with later versions of Office, specifically 2003.

        iedw.exe causes error messages related to the invocation, use, or purging of the iexplore.exe interface into or out of memory. In colloquial terms, the launching of Internet Explorer. According to the Microsoft knowledge base, Internet Explorer no longer has a repair function as of Windows XP. You can install a previous version that did not ship with the operating system, or reinstall the OS to continue using Internet Explorer. Other web browsers do not use this process.

        Very rarely on modern computers, dw.exe appears as a virus. More commonly if the above solutions fail or are inapplicable, it could be spyware. See antispyware and antivirus and malware for further reading.

              Well, I've figured out what crashes, it is mappoint.exe. It fails to close when you shutdown SD. The dw.exe is the debug tool for mappoint.

              Solution so far is to uninstall mappoint and install data from the SD DVD.

                I have the same problem also. I uninstalled MapPoint 2006 and installed from the SD DVD and now it works. Thats an ok fix for me, but someone else might want to have MapPoint and SD on the same machine.

                  Someone like me... I want to have a full Mappoint install for future development, but so far I haven't found a workaround yet for this issue.

                    did you try deleting dw.exe and renaming another nonexecutable file to it.

                        Thats why you should rename another non-executable file to it so it doesn't try to reinstall it.

                          I'll try replacing dw.exe with this script to shutdown mappoint.exe

                          OleObject mssc
                          int li_rc
                          string ls_code
                          long i

                          mssc = CREATE OleObject
                          li_rc = mssc.ConnectToNewObject( "MSScriptControl.ScriptControl" )
                          mssc.language = "VBScript"



                          ls_code = "function killmappoint() ~r~n" + &
                          "Set locator = CreateObject(~"WbemScripting.SWbemLocator~")~r~n" + &
                          "Set service = locator.ConnectServer()~r~n" + &
                          "Set props = service.ExecQuery" + &
                          "(~"select name, description from Win32_Process where name = 'mappoint.exe'~")~r~n" + &
                          "num = props.count~r~n" + &
                          "for each mappoint in props~r~n " + &
                          " mappoint.terminate ~r~n " + &
                          "next~r~n" + &
                          "killmappoint = num~r~n" + &
                          "end function"
                          // messagebox("", ls_code)
                          mssc.AddCode(ls_code)
                          i = mssc.Eval("killmappoint()")

                          messagebox("mappoint killed", string(i))

                          mssc.DisconnectObject()
                          DESTROY mssc

                          renaming png does not close mappoint running instance, so
                          the problem isnt dw.exe, it is mappoint.exe that fails to close and it invokes dw.exe which is a debug appl. for mappoint

                            I have this same dw.exe/mappoint problem with Streetdeck, but I never installed Mappoint by itself, just the version integrated in streetdeck.

                              If DrWatson is kicking off, it means that Windows choked on something at some point. If that's teh case, then there should be something in the APplication Event Log within Windoze.

                              Right-click My Computer > Manage > Event Viewer > Application
                              Look for items that have the red X or the yellow exclamation mark.
                              You could also compare timestamps of events.
                              Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                              How about the Wiki?
