If you would like to disable the pop-up dialog that Windows displays after an app crashes:
On Windows XP, they could get rid of it by going to “Control Panel > System Properties > Advanced > Error reporting”, clicking on “Disable error reporting” and disabling “But notify me when critical error occurs”.
On Windows 7 on the other hand, if we go to “Control Panel\System and Security\Action Center\Problem Reporting Settings” and select “Never check for solutions”, we still see a dialog when app crashes. The dialog says:
MyAppName has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
[Close the program] [Debug the program]
A command like this won’t work, as it has the same effect than the control panel: serverWerOptin /disable.
We will have to set this registry value to 1 instead: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\DontShowUI
