MSDN Webcast: Windows Error Reporting (Level 200)
Event ID: 1032314332
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Windows Vista.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

In this webcast, we explore Windows Error Reporting (WER), a set of Windows technologies that capture software crash data and support user reporting of crash information. By default, when applications running on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista operating systems encounter a user-mode fault (crash), users can have a mini-dump file of the crash sent to Microsoft. WER gathers the information when a failure is detected and then prompts the user to send in a report. If the user sends the report, the information is uploaded directly to Microsoft. In this session, we demonstrate an analysis of the frequency and type of crashes on a Microsoft developer portal site, downloading the application dump file, debugging with Windows Debugger (WinDbg), and building a response to be posted back on the site.

Presenter: Blair Shaw, Application Development Consultant, Microsoft Corporation
