  Why would you expect it to?  Returning a non-zero error code from main
(..) isn't remotely the same thing as having a SEGV or other problem that
would cause a core dump to be generated.

  Misunderstanding what dumper.exe does.
  Misunderstanding what a non-zero return code is.
  Misunderstanding what conditions cause a corefile to be generated.

  So, it used to work, then you changed it, and it stopped working?  I think
you can fairly safely deduce that your changes were buggy.

  Either that, or the last line of main (...) reads "return 0x0303000;".

  Since you've got the code up and running in a debugger, you can set
breakpoints on abort, exit, and the last line of main, then when it hits one
you can see for yourself from which point your code is exiting and the
reason why it's returning a non-zero exit code.

  BTW, you haven't declared main to return void, have you?  If you try that
I'll have to set the denizens of comp.lang.c on you......

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
