What are the "Windows NT Support Tools"?

A. These are a set of tools used to aid debugging and diagnosis of Windows 3.51 and 4.0 systems.

The current version is 1.0 and these tools are free and can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/tools/OEMSupportTools/OEMTools.exe (5.29MB).

The support tools consist of 3 programs

  • Kernel Debugger - New debugger extensions to facilitate examination and analysis of a wider range of Kernel data structures than is conveniently possible today, especially when dealing with crash dumps.
  • Pool Enhancements - Tools for memory pool caller-tracking/tail-checking and increasing available pool statistics.
  • Kernel Memory Space Analyzer - A heuristics-based kernel memory crash dump analysis tool to aid in diagnosing memory corruption problems. This tool discovers and analyzes anomalies in the kernel memory space

The download file is self-extracting and detailed instructions are provided in the readme.txt file.
