Yes I tried it several ways including the direct call to dumper.exe.  I used
the batch file just so I could pause the console window long enough to view
the messages.  It looks like several other people are having the problem
though and some aren't.

I am using the latest binary distro on XP.  I've never DLed and rebuilt
the packages from source.  Perhaps I should try that.
Which package is dumper contained in?   I'd imagine it has some
dependencies with other packages for which I'll need source?

Thanks
