This doesn't give us any information about the crash, just that tor crashed. Did windows pop up a crash window with a mix of hexadecimal and text about the crash? That's the information we need.

Hm. That sucks. Tor 0.2.1.26 crashes for one user on Windows, but we have no clue why or how or where.

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#MyTorkeepscrashing.
is a good link to start with.

I wonder how Matt and his Breakpad Windows crash handling support is coming.

pretty sure he implemented it and we never did anything with it. Also, the dumps can send lots of sensitive data to Microsoft for added fun.

also, with the millions of people who have tested 0.2.1.26, probability says it is this user's config more than some systemic problem.

closing because the user disappeared and the information available isn't actionable.
