    get stack strace

    Hello everyone,


    If I only know the binary address of an instruction of a current process, for example, address 0x12345678, is it possible to print stack trace from the root caller to the specific address using WinDbg or some other tools?


    thanks in advance,
    George

    WinDbg itself has a way of printing the callstack of the current process. The command "k" will show the current threads stack. You can add more commands to "k", e.g. "kP" will give you the full parameters of the call-stack. Check out the built-in help, it's pretty good.
