·Screen Dump info  

If FS Sound Studio crashed, then capture the screen dump, and in particular the stack dump and email the data. It is not obvious, but you can select the text on the system dialog that shows the error and paste it into a text editor, such as Notepad. Select the text with your mouse and use Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard. Use Ctrl-V to paste it into your text. Make sure you indicate what FS Sound Studio was doing when it crashed. Here is a sample stack dump:

FS Sound Studio caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 0123:aff75411.
