What is dmp file? How to open dmp files?
File extension dmp is mainly associated with Memory dump files. A dump of memory typically created automatically when Windows crashes.

You can configure Windows to save STOP message information to a "dump" file.Three types of memory dumps are available:
- A small memory dump (64 kilobytes), which is written to the %SystemRoot%\Minidump folder. The paging file on the boot volume must be at least 2 megabytes (MB) in size.
- A kernel memory dump, which is written to the %SystemRoot%\Memory.dmp folder. The paging file on the boot volume must be at least 50 to 800 MB in size, depending on the amount of RAM.
- A complete memory dump, which is written to the %SystemRoot%\Memory.dmp folder. The paging file on the boot volume must be large enough to hold all of the physical RAM plus 1 MB.
Note: Generally speaking, a lot of program do use DMP extension for their memory dump files, that are generated during crashes. These are used to solve problems and fix bugs by the program developers.
