Why did that application crash?

It's a fact of life: applications crash. Whether it's an undiscovered bug in a program, or a bad set of data, there will come a time when your work will come to an abrupt halt and you will be presented with a message box bearing some kind of indecipherable error message telling you that it's game over. Have you ever though that it might be handy to have a little more information than that to work with?

WinCrashReport wants to help you figure it all out. Rather than merely telling you that your application "has encountered a problem and needs to close", it lets you see what really happened in there. If you're not a total egghead, you may not be able to make heads or tails out of the information, but you do have the ability to save it off to a report to examine at your leisure, and maybe, just maybe, you'll see something that gives you a clue as to what went wrong. Personally, I'm guessing it was mischievous little elves in there.

WinCrashReport is a Windows application. It works with Win2000 and later; 32-bit only.
