How to create and debug dump files of .Net 1.1? mscordmp.exe ?

I'm trying to find the way to create and debug dumpfile of dotnet
application.

Any recommendation of articles, tools for creating dump file + debug it
are appreciated.

The documentation I found recommends using mscordmp.exe
- The documentation does not specify file extension for the dump file
- The documentation does not specify how to decide what will be
included in the dump file

The creation of the dump file succeeded (on a small application - not
an the real one ...)

Reaching this great step I now need only to start debug the file - HOW
????

If the file has no extension - I can't associate it to an application,
Visual studio does not know how to open it (open it in binary editor is
not the thing I'm looking for)

Adding extension .dmp or .mdmp to the file (since it should be a dump
file - isn't it) does not help! - VS complains "unrecognized or
unsupported binary format"

Did someone at Microsoft or elsewhere thought of documenting what to do
with the file created by mscordmp? or is it considered not an important
step - to debug the dump file?

No answer found as to using mscordmp.exe

Meanwhile I found the tool to use is ADPlus.vbs from Microsoft Debugging tools
