Corporate Error Reporting

Corporate Error Reporting (CER) is a tool designed for Administrators to manage error reports created by the Windows® Error Reporting client, as well as Error Reporting clients shipped with applications. If the Error Reporting clients are configured for CER, the Error Reports are redirected to a network share available through a Universal Naming Convention (UNC). As a result, Administrators in the Information Technology (IT) department can use the Corporate Error Reporting tool to review the redirected error reports and filter the reports that are sent to Microsoft® through the CER tool based on your corporate policies and the data contained within the error report.

Installing Corporate Error Reporting

To install CER, download the CER redistributable from the Microsoft Web site. This redistributable file requires a Windows Installer version of 2.0 or higher. Windows Installer is included in Windows 2000 SP3 or later, and is native in Windows XP. A Unicode redistributable for Windows Installer can be found on the Microsoft Web site.

The installation of CER is only supported on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 SP6a, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows XP and later.

The Corporate Error Reporting installation wizard will guide you through the installation process. The CER help file installed with the CER tool contains information about the configuration of a Corporate Error Reporting server.

To start the Corporate Error reporting tool after installation, click Start, select the Programs menu (All Programs), and then select Corporate Error Reporting.
