App Icon "Windows Error Reporting" (or WER) is a feature that was introduced in Windows Vista SP1 that allows to collect crash reports if a program crashes. Such reports greatly facilitate debugging of the issue that caused the crash. Click here for more information on WER.

By default WER is disabled. This GUI utility simplifies the process of configuring WER to collect crash reports (also known as crash dumps, or minidumps) for crashing programs. The utility simply provides a graphic user interface to set up the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps

This utility can be helpful for developers of a crashing application. For instance, a developer can instruct the end-users experiencing crashes in their application to download and run this tool to configure Windows to collect crash dumps. After that the end-users can simply upload to the developers of the crashing application the minidump (.dmp) files that will be generated by Windows after each crash. Information provided in crash dump files can be indispensable for developers to debug the issue.

Note again, that this utility does not collect crash dumps itself. It simply helps end-users to set up WER for crash dump collection.

For details on setting up this tool check the manual in the INFO file provided in the download package. For more technical details on system registry settings that this tool works with check this document.

SECURITY NOTE TO END-USERS: Since crash dump files contain the snapshot of memory of the crashed program, there is NO guarantee that generated dump file will not contain your private or sensitive information. Such information may be a part of the dump file if crash happened when the application was working with sensitive data. Exercise security precautions when sending out crash dump files!
