    Hey~ You will probably need to download a debugger, as a .dmp file is a memory dump file typically. The easiest download is WinDBG, which is available at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/default.mspx You will need how to do debugging, but I assume you do not know a lot of debug commands. Use the WinDBG help to determine what commands to use.. HTH,

    Hey~ This is odd that you do not get any event error information. That should not happen if you are actually seeing the process exit. Is this occurring? On IIS 6.0, you have unique worker processes that are associated per application pool. My suggestion, because I lack an understanding of the actual summary of what is occurring, is to isolate your applications into dedicated application pools. For example, assume you have this setup: Default App Pool - Default Web Site Application (Right-click on Web Site, Home Directory, Application Setting) HR Application Purchasing Application IT Application In this scenario, you have all applications sharing the application space including all ASP actions and CLR related applications. ------------------------------------------------------ Now, break this down further to isolate the applications by doing this - Default App Pool - Default Web Site HR Application - HR App Purchasing Application - Purchasing App etc... You can change the application pool by clicking Home Directory | Virtual Directory and then choosing Application Pool drop-down. After you do some isolation, then possibly we will know which application is failing and then we can get more data regarding to the matter. HTH,
