Windows Error Reporting

Windows Error Reporting (WER) is included in Windows Vista and later versions of Windows. You can configure WER to write user-mode dump files when exceptions and other errors occur in user-mode code. For more information, see Enabling Postmortem Debugging and Collecting User-Mode Dumps.

WER replaced Dr. Watson, which was included in Windows XP.
