    Where is dumpchk.exe

    My laptop took a memory dump today and I was unable to find the dumpchk.exe
    to analyze the memory dump. I looked at my Vista CD and could not find the
    setup.exe program under support\tool subfolder. Where can I get this
    executable?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    It doesn't come with Vista, but does come in the Support Tools directory of
    a Windows XP CD.
