Hello, I am trying to dump a VS C++ process with either Task Manager or Visual Studio.  The problem I am having is the process is not available for 'breaking' with the button because it hasn't started yet.  I am not allowed to start the debugging process when visual studio needs to be ready to and I have selected 'Native Code.'  The process is not available to choose because it hasn't started yet.

On the other hand, when I try to execute the application first, the mouse cursor is 'trapped' on this screen.  Bringing up the task manager or trying a shortcut key from here just shuts-down this application's process making it not possible to debug.

The program is 'hung' in a manner that it would be informative to stop it as it's running and get a dump.  Can anyone help, I'm using Visual Studio 2015?

Thank you,

Josheir

Try (from Visual Studio) starting the program by clicking Debug -> Step Into. This will get you the first line of code running in the program. You can step forward from there until the conditions occur that you wish to debug.

You can also set breakpoints if you know what general region of code is breaking. This will drop you into the debugger as soon as the suspect code executes.
