Configure Crash Dumps with Windows Error Reporting

Senior Member

Is it possible to config the WER for crash dumps?  As explained:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/wer/windows-error-reporting

 

For example, an application would have to edit the registry in the following way:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\MyApplication.exe]
"DumpType"=dword:00000002
"DumpCount"=dword:00000002
"DumpFolder"=hex(2):...

 

This obviously need admin rights to hit HKLM.  Can this be accomplished somehow during install so it is outside the VFS?
