Short description
Disables Windows Error Reporting.

Disable-WindowsErrorReporting [<CommonParameters>]

The Disable-WindowsErrorReporting cmdlet disables Windows Error Reporting (WER) on the server.

Windows Error Reporting is a flexible feedback infrastructure that gathers information about hardware and software prob
lems, reports the information to Microsoft, and provides users with any available solutions. Windows Error Reporting ge
nerates reports in response to system events, such as application crashes or kernel faults.

To get the current WER status, use the Get-WindowsErrorReporting cmdlet. If you disable WER, you can use the Enable-Win
dowsErrorReporting cmdlet to re-enable it. After you run this cmdlet, WER once again sends information about applicatio
n failures to Microsoft.
