Hi

I'm not sure about ready tools but you can use proxy dlls and apis like 'AddVectoredExceptionHandler'.

I am sure what I am going to suggest is not what you are looking for, but what you asking is the actual definition of a DEBUGGER.

Yes the question is too open ended to answer. Please clarify and be more specific. Crash dumps or a debugger are the answer or maybe even hooking some APIs or injecting some code into the process in a special case.

If you don't have the address already when it happens... I would also say recording a crash dump, then analysing it might give you hints on what/where the problem is.
