Windows Embedded CE Error Reporting is a set of technologies that captures key information about the state of the machine at the time of a program crash and allows users to report the collected information. Error Reporting helps improve the reliability of products and applications by giving continuous, detailed feedback to OEMs and Microsoft developers about problems users actually experience.

Developers can use the crash data collected to not only debug particular issues, but to spot trends. Historically, most failures are caused by very few code defects; fewer than 1% of the defects collected in crash dumps account for more than half of the total failures.
