Short description
Enables Windows Error Reporting.

Enable-WindowsErrorReporting [<CommonParameters>]

The Enable-WindowsErrorReporting cmdlet enables 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 enable WER, you can use the Disable-Win
dowsErrorReporting cmdlet to disable it. After you run this cmdlet, WER no longer sends information about application f
ailures to Microsoft.
