In the Windows 7 task manager, I can create a dump file of a running process by right-clicking the process entry and selecting "Create Dump File". By default, this saves the file to the logged-on user's temp directory.

Is there a way to change where this dump file is saved?

You could try using ProcDump. Not exactly what you where asking but could solve your problem.

It turns out that the path can't be changed at all; external tools are the best I can do. – Steve Guidi Sep 2 '11 at 0:18
