Locating the WinMine Playing Grid

Let's begin by firing up WinMine, via Start Menu -Run -WinMine. Ensure WinMine has the following preferences set:
Level: Custom
    Height: 900
    Width:  800
    Mines:  300
Marks: Enabled
Color: Enabled
Sound: Disabled

Once this is complete, compile and execute the supplemental SetGrid application[12] found in the reference section. This will ensure that the reader's playing grid mirrors the grid utilized during the writing of this paper. Switch over to WinDBG and press F6. This will provide the reader with a list of processes. Select winmine.exe and press Enter. This will attach WinDBG to the WinMine process. The reader will immediately notice the Command, Registers, and Disassembly windows now contain values.
