In development environments or when debugging a customer issue, it is usually a pain to get a crash dump of an existing VM state.

Anton Naumovich from Hyper-V team recently released a tool which can convert a VM saved state to a full memory dump file. This tool enables easier debugging of issues in the VMs and provides the fastest way to generate a memory dump file from a VM. It comes as a single executable and with a single command; any saved VM or online snapshot can be converted into a full memory dump file.
