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?)

WER LocalDumps does not dump 32-bits application on 64-bits Windows 2008 when the application crash

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