Even if you could launch kicad from gdb and to a backtrace after the segfault would be helpful. I have never had any luck interrupting an running process using gdb on windows.

In the installer I also tried to include gdb, such that it could potentiallyt be possible to run kicad on windows in here, but this is not well tested. All I did was successfully make it run and break on a kicad function. I am not sure how much debugging you can actually do with that.

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks.  I've never used a RelWithDebInfo build.  What kind of debugging
    info would this give me if I ran it gdb?  Would it be good enough for
    someone to do produce useful debugging information performing a
    backtrace on a segfault?
