A sequel of Disabling "MyApp has stopped working" dialog.

What can I do so that no dialog appears when a process crashes?

Update: If Windows Error Reporting is disabled, the dialog says "A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly" and has a "Close the program" button.

A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. And a "Close the program" button. – Lev Jun 23 '09 at 10:53

In the registry, go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting and add the REG_DWORD value DontShowUI = 1
