Hi bfoman,

I have completed my additional formatting and rewritting work on the
wiki, which includes adding of screenshots.

I would love to know how to use symchk.exe to download all needed
symbols for offline usage, as i have noticed a few times that the
analysis would take quite a bit of time to complete and assumed it was
going online searching for what it needed. I hope it doesnt take a huge
amount of space. If i can get it to work, then i can add it to the wiki. :)

About debugging through the child processes method, i had originally
wanted to do this so i didnt have to load up LibO separately, but guess
i didnt notice the checkbox in the file open dialog. :) I havent really
found a need to run it this way, unless libreoffice was crashing itself
when starting up without the loading of a file.

Look forward to your additions when ever you do get the time.
