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.
