How to Write an AutoIt App that will crash on demand?


Recommended Posts

I'm working on setting up WER and Crash Dump handling for some our applications, but they don't crash often enough to verify if I have things configured optimally.

So I would like to write a Simply AutoIT app that would "Crash" and generate WER/DMP files.

Perhaps just a simple app that brings up an "OK" button and when clicked would crash.

I found some C++ examples of how to write a "Crash App", but I don't even have a C++ compiler installed.
