All Products: Configure Windows Error Reporting to Save Crashes of RepMgr in set location

Environment

  • Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions

Objective

Capture crash Dumps using Windows Error Reporting to a specified location when generated

Resolution

  1. Open regedit.exe
  2. Open key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps
  3. Edit DumpFolder (REG_EXPAND_SZ) to target directory

Additional Notes

You can further refine what is captured by creating a folder off DumpFolder named the specific Application desired.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\RepMgr.exe

Setting a key named DumpFolder in this path will allow you to specify custom locations for the Dumps. For example,
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\RepMgr.exe

DumpFolder (REG_EXPAND_SZ) %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps
This would save Crash Dumps of RepMgr directly to the Local App Data folder directory named CrashDumps. 

ProcDump provides additional options as well for this.
