- When Windbg is installed, Launch Windbg. Click File->Attach to a Process... (F6).
- Select smpolicysrv.exe from the list of running processes and then hit "OK".
- Once WinDbg has been attached to the process, then on the command input window at the bottom of the WinDbg window enter a command .dump to generate the dump.
