/errorReport (Report Internal Compiler Errors)
Enables you to provide internal compiler error (ICE) information directly to the Microsoft Visual C++ development team.
An internal compiler error (ICE) is thrown when the compiler cannot process a source code file. When an ICE occurs, the compiler does not produce an output file or any other diagnostic that you can use to fix your code.
In earlier releases, when you got an ICE, you were encouraged to call Microsoft Product Support Services to report the problem. With /errorReport, you can provide ICE information directly to the Microsoft development team. Your error reports can help improve future compiler releases.
The ability to send reports depends on machine policy and user policy permissions.
