Microsoft Application Error Reporting

What is Microsoft Application Error Reporting?

Microsoft Application Error Reporting is a crash reporting technology. Windows Error Reporting collects and offers to send post-error debug information (a memory dump) using the Internet to the developer of an application that crashes or stops responding on a user's desktop. No data is sent without the user's consent. When a dump (or other error signature information) reaches the Microsoft server, it is analyzed and a solution is sent back to the user when one is available. Solutions are served using Microsoft Application Error Reporting Responses. Microsoft has reported that data collected from Windows Error Reporting has made a huge difference in the way software is developed internally.
