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.  
MayogroupAuthor Commented:
I must also point out that the Crashdumps key was not in the registry by default. I had to create it. Is this right?
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Not that exact article, but one with pretty much the same details.

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