Add a way to view CTD (crash) logs to identify the cause

Currently, there is no way to view a detailed log/traceback of what happened when a CTD (crash to desktop) occurs. Especially in the context of development, being able to see which gauge/function/call resulted in the CTD, whether directly or indirectly, is extremely valuable and will save countless man-hours of debugging, especially when it's not even clear whether it could be an issue caused by a module in development, or the sim itself.

Fully agree.

To share another example. I'm currently investigating why I have 100% CTD when loading default World Update CDG LFPG. I found that at least two freeware scenaries (KAVX and KEMT both by Foxtrot), when active in my community folder, even with the duplicate modellib.bgl file fixed make direct CTD when loading LFPG. Would love to know the last function call, the last file loaded or searched...

Valid point :) But to be honest it should not CTD in the first place. I do not want to dig in logs :)
