Sorry, pressed enter before I finished the question.
Are the entries in the image above correct?

If I go to %localappdata%\ there is no crashdumps folder.

I must also point out that the Crashdumps key was not in the registry by default. I had to create it. Is this right?

For which application are you trying to collect the dump?
(32 bit or 64 bit application?)

The app is 32 bit. How do we make this work for 32bit apps on 64 Bit server then?
