Policy CSP - ADMX_ErrorReporting


ADMX_ErrorReporting policies

Tip

This is an ADMX-backed policy and requires a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.

ADMX_ErrorReporting/PCH_AllOrNoneDef

Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
Home No No
Pro No No
Business No No
Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting controls whether errors in general applications are included in reports when Windows Error Reporting is enabled.

If you enable this policy setting, you can instruct Windows Error Reporting in the Default pull-down menu to report either all application errors (the default setting), or no application errors.

If the Report all errors in Microsoft applications check box is filled, all errors in Microsoft applications are reported, regardless of the setting in the Default pull-down menu. When the Report all errors in Windows check box is filled, all errors in Windows applications are reported, regardless of the setting in the Default dropdown list. The Windows applications category is a subset of Microsoft applications.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users can enable or disable Windows Error Reporting in Control Panel. The default setting in Control Panel is Upload all applications.

This policy setting is ignored if the Configure Error Reporting policy setting is disabled or not configured.

For related information, see the Configure Error Reporting and Report Operating System Errors policy settings.

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting controls Windows Error Reporting behavior for errors in general applications when Windows Error Reporting is turned on.

If you enable this policy setting, you can create a list of applications that are never included in error reports. To create a list of applications for which Windows Error Reporting never reports errors, click Show under the Exclude errors for applications on this list setting, and then add or remove applications from the list of application file names in the Show Contents dialog box (example: notepad.exe). File names must always include the .exe file name extension. Errors that are generated by applications in this list are not reported, even if the Default Application Reporting Settings policy setting is configured to report all application errors.

If this policy setting is enabled, the Exclude errors for applications on this list setting takes precedence. If an application is listed both in the List of applications to always report errors for policy setting, and in the exclusion list in this policy setting, the application is excluded from error reporting. You can also use the exclusion list in this policy setting to exclude specific Microsoft applications or parts of Windows if the check boxes for these categories are filled in the Default application reporting settings policy setting.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Default application reporting settings policy setting takes precedence.

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting specifies applications for which Windows Error Reporting should always report errors.

To create a list of applications for which Windows Error Reporting never reports errors, click Show under the Exclude errors for applications on this list setting, and then add or remove applications from the list of application file names in the Show Contents dialog box (example: notepad.exe). Errors that are generated by applications in this list are not reported, even if the Default Application Reporting Settings policy setting is configured to report all application errors.

If you enable this policy setting, you can create a list of applications that are always included in error reporting. To add applications to the list, click Show under the Report errors for applications on this list setting, and edit the list of application file names in the Show Contents dialog box. The file names must include the .exe file name extension (for example, notepad.exe). Errors that are generated by applications on this list are always reported, even if the Default dropdown in the Default application reporting policy setting is set to report no application errors.

If the Report all errors in Microsoft applications or Report all errors in Windows components check boxes in the Default Application Reporting policy setting are filled, Windows Error Reporting reports errors as if all applications in these categories were added to the list in this policy setting. (Note: The Microsoft applications category includes the Windows components category.)

If you disable this policy setting or do not configure it, the Default application reporting settings policy setting takes precedence.

Also see the "Default Application Reporting" and "Application Exclusion List" policies.

This setting will be ignored if the 'Configure Error Reporting' setting is disabled or not configured.

Home No No
Pro No No
Business No No
Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting configures how errors are reported to Microsoft, and what information is sent when Windows Error Reporting is enabled.

This policy setting does not enable or disable Windows Error Reporting. To turn Windows Error Reporting on or off, see the Turn off Windows Error Reporting policy setting in Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Internet Communication Management/Internet Communication settings.

Important

If the Turn off Windows Error Reporting policy setting is not configured, then Control Panel settings for Windows Error Reporting override this policy setting.

If you enable this policy setting, the setting overrides any user changes made to Windows Error Reporting settings in Control Panel, and default values are applied for any Windows Error Reporting policy settings that are not configured (even if users have changed settings by using Control Panel). If you enable this policy setting, you can configure the following settings in the policy setting:

  • "Do not display links to any Microsoft ‘More information’ websites": Select this option if you do not want error dialog boxes to display links to Microsoft websites.

  • "Do not collect additional files": Select this option if you do not want additional files to be collected and included in error reports.

  • "Do not collect additional computer data": Select this if you do not want additional information about the computer to be collected and included in error reports.

  • "Force queue mode for application errors": Select this option if you do not want users to report errors. When this option is selected, errors are stored in a queue directory, and the next administrator to log on to the computer can send the error reports to Microsoft.

  • "Corporate file path": Type a UNC path to enable Corporate Error Reporting. All errors are stored at the specified location instead of being sent directly to Microsoft, and the next administrator to log onto the computer can send the error reports to Microsoft.

  • "Replace instances of the word ‘Microsoft’ with": You can specify text with which to customize your error report dialog boxes. The word ""Microsoft"" is replaced with the specified text.

If you do not configure this policy setting, users can change Windows Error Reporting settings in Control Panel. By default, these settings are Enable Reporting on computers that are running Windows XP, and Report to Queue on computers that are running Windows Server 2003.

If you disable this policy setting, configuration settings in the policy setting are left blank.

See related policy settings Display Error Notification (same folder as this policy setting), and Turn off Windows Error Reporting in Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Internet Communication Management/Internet Communication settings.

If you enable this policy setting, any additional data requests from Microsoft in response to a Windows Error Reporting report are automatically declined, without notification to the user.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, then consent policy settings in Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Error Reporting/Consent take precedence.

This policy setting determines the behavior of the Windows Error Reporting report queue.

If you enable this policy setting, you can configure report queue behavior by using the controls in the policy setting. When the Queuing behavior pull-down list is set to Default, Windows determines, when a problem occurs, whether the report should be placed in the reporting queue, or the user should be prompted to send it immediately. When Queuing behavior is set to Always queue, all reports are added to the queue until the user is prompted to send the reports, or until the user sends problem reports by using the Solutions to Problems page in Control Panel.

The Maximum number of reports to queue setting determines how many reports can be queued before older reports are automatically deleted. The setting for Number of days between solution check reminders determines the interval time between the display of system notifications that remind the user to check for solutions to problems. A value of 0 disables the reminder.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Windows Error Reporting reports are not queued, and users can only send reports at the time that a problem occurs.
