Disable "has stopped working" "is restarting" etc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a piece of software that periodically fails for some unknown reason. I have pretty much given up on trying to figure out what its problem is. I simply respawn the process if it fails to respond or no longer exists. The process runs several times a minute. Occasionally, I get an error message saying my software "has stopped working" followed by another messagebox saying my software "is restarting". And then it restarts my process. This is beyond stupid since my process requires command line arguments that are not being provided when this restart occurs. I simply want to disable these messages or at least disable this auto restart. Is there any way to do this?

    I have already tried the regedit hack:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting]
    "DontShowUI "=dword:00000001

    This didnt work. I still get these messages.
