QuestionMinidumps. Pin

I've created a small VS 2012 c# project that eventually does a divide-by-zero. I catch the exception and then do a call to MiniDumpWriteDump and it successfully creates a dump file.

Obviously I have the pdb and source files.

What I'd like to do now is load the minidump into VS and then examine it so I can get familiar with how to read it etc. As I understand, the minidump file should be able to display exactly what was going on and using the debugger, I could look at the stack trace and display variables? Double-clicking the minidump file opens it in VS 2012 but I'm really left with the puzzle, what now? Has anyone loaded a dump file before and looked at it in VS?

I've searched for answers but the term minidump is so ubiquitous that it's really not easy to what's relevant to VS and what isn't. I'm led to believe that if I have the dump file and the pdb files and the source then I should be able to see an exact snapshot of went turned tits-up. I just don't really know what's the best way to load it and change any settings to use it. If I can get it working on a simple divide-by-zero app then I can use them in our production app which'll help us deal with fatal problems reported by our users.

If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
