List of applications to never report errors for

This setting controls error reporting for errors in general applications when error reporting is enabled.

The "Default" dropdown list allows you to choose whether or not to report all application errors or no application errors by default.

To create a list of applications that error reporting will report for, click the "Show" button next to "Report errors for applications on this list" and edit the list of application filenames (example: notepad.exe). Errors generated by applications in this list will be reported, even if "Default" is set to report no application errors. You may use the "Report all errors in Microsoft applications" and "Report all errors in Windows components" checkboxes to implicitly add applications in these categories to the include list. Note that the "Microsoft applications" category includes the "Windows components" category.

To create a list of applications that error reporting will exclude from reporting, click the "Show" button next to "Exclude errors for applications on this list". Errors generated by applications in this list will never be reported, even if the default is set to report all application errors.

The exclude list has priority, so if an application is listed in the include list and exclude list the application will be excluded. You may also use the exclude list to exclude specific Microsoft applications or Windows components if you implicitly included these categories in the include list via the two checkboxes.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the user will be able to adjust this setting via the control panel, which is set to 'upload all applications' by default.
