Error Reporting (Compact 2013)


Windows Embedded Compact 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 to OEMs and Microsoft.

The standard error report includes information such as the following:

  • Stack details
  • Some system information
  • A list of loaded modules
  • Exception type
  • Global and local variables

Crash information is compressed into a CAB file and, with user consent, sent to the Microsoft Watson web site.

To add this feature to your OS, see Error Reporting Catalog Items and Sysgen Variables.

For reference information, see Error Reporting Reference.
