Is DWWIN.DLL the Error Reporting Tool?
Dwwin.dll is part of all Windows operating systems and is an essential component of the commonly known system debugger Dr.Watson. The Dr.Watson application is available in Windows as either drwatson.exe, drwtsn32.exe or dwwin.exe. As an essential system component, dwwin.dll is crucial for the function of Dr.Watson, as it helps the monitoring of application crashes. Developed by Microvision Development, the dll file can also be described as part of the MicroVision DWWIN Library.
The essential function of the dwwin.dll file is to assist the Dr.Watson application of any Windows system to obtain and log technical information needed to diagnose program errors; a drwtsn32.log text file is created whenever an error is detected and is used by technical support to debug the error. Dwwin.dll also functions to help create a crash dump file, which is a binary file, so a programmer loads it into a debugger.
Errors reported in relation to dwwin.dll are all due to Windows application crashes.
“Failure to initialize dwwin.dll” (at shutdown)
A common error, you are seen it because there is an error in the shutting down process and the Dr.Watson application cannot report it as the computer is shutting down. To fix this, you need to check any input devices you have installed that came from Logitech or Gravis and also Norton Internet Security. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
Open regedit, go to: HKLM_SOFTWARE_MICROSOFT_WINDOWS_CURRENT VERSION_RUN
For your above-mentioned devices, you need to modify the value of the registry key so that the application starts up in “below normal” processor priority, such as “start /belownormal c:\windows\system32\Grxp4exe.exe /init”.
An unstable computer system can also prompt the Dr.Watson application to try and warn you, and if the dwwin.dll error persists, you can go to Start, Run and type sfc/scannow and let the system check for any errors and auto-fix them. Keep your Windows CD handy before you start this process.
