Like the message says, you need to useĀ sxstrace.exe to get more details of what clapped out.

This video will give you an idea. I presume you know what you are doing with DLLs etc, as that is what I think has clapped out.


  1. Start trace
  2. run app to get error.
  3. stop trace.
  4. use the tool to bash the trash to readable format.
