  • Would you be willing to some additional debug information?  I am requesting 3 items.  They should all be from the same PC having this issue.  I know you have multiple with this issue.

    If the file sizes are too large to upload please provide a link to a public oneDrive shared folder or some other online resource.  Let me know if you need another option.


    1. System Information File.
      Please provide a copy
      of your System Information file. To access your System Information file select
      the keyboard shortcutWin+R

    type msinfo32 

    click OK 

    Place the cursor on System

    . Select File, Export and give the file a name noting
    where it is located. Click Save. 

    in the txt file format are preferred.
    Do not place the cursor within the body of the report
    before exporting the file.

    The system creates a new System Information file each
    time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two for the
    file to be fully populated before exporting a copy.

    1. Event Viewer events

    To access the System log select the keyboard
    shortcut Win+R

    type eventvwr.msc

    press the ENTER

    From the list in the left side of the window select Windows Logs and System.

    type) and give the file a name. Do not provide filtered files. 
    Do not place the cursor in the list of reports before
    selecting Action from the menu

    . Do not clear logs

    you have a continuing problem.

    1. A crash dump.  This is a bit more work to perform but not too bad.

    Download Debug
    Diagnostic Tool v1.2 from


    installed open “DebugDiag2 Collection” and select the rule type ‘Crash’ and
    click next.


    Select target type select ‘

    and click next


    the text box next to Selected Process please enter iexplore.exe and click next


    the Advanced Configuration please just click next


    in the Select Dump Location please take note of the location where the dump
    file will be written. You can change this to another location if you wish.
    Click Next then Click Finish.


    you have reproduced the crash, open the folder location from step 5 above.
    Locate the file ending in .dmp. Please compress (zip) this .dmp file(s) and
    upload them to connect. 

    Once you have reproduced the crash open the folder
    location from step 5 above. Locate the file ending in ‘.dmp’. Please compress
    (zip) this ‘.dmp’ file(s) and upload.

  • Hi,

    I uploaded the files.

    The process MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe does not generate a DMP, I have forced the generation of the DMP with WER, the log if it is DebugDiag


  • I have uploaded an dmp file of microsoftedge.exe to my onedrive


  • I upload additonal dmp & log files


  • Appreciate you taking the time to provide the debug logs and information.  I will take a look and continue my investigation.

    Thanks again,


  • Also, that does make sense that “MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe” is not crashing.  “MicrosoftEdge.exe” is the first exe to load and then the other processes are launched as needed, e.g. “MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe.”  Appreciate you sorting that out.  :-)

  • Hello,

    I have monitored processes by filtering the processes (browser_broker.exe, MicrosoftEdge.exe, MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe, ApplicationFramehost.exe) and I do not see MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe running as you indicated.

    See ProcessMonitor.csv File.
