    Would you like to debug this program?

    Actually, no I would not.
    I'd just like an exit status so that I can proceed with the next automated test without having to sit around waiting to press a key to dismiss the popup.

    I've managed to disable "Would you like to tell Microsoft" part, but this one still remains.

    The question being, what do I need to do to make this annoyance vanish?

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I don't know about making that go away, but I can write a program to click ok or hit enter for you whenever that pops up.
    Don't quote me on that... ...seriously

    You could write a script with AutoIT that does that for you, it wouldn't take much more than 1-2 lines to do so.

    Windows has a defult debugger for unhandled exceptions.

    If you have a debugger installed it makes a registry entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

    There must be a change to make to that key that would fix your problem, but I cant find it as I'm in work at the moment.

    Try google on "AEDebug" - I'm sure the answer is a pretty common one

    P.S. this is the first time in many years I've had (or seen anyone have for that matter) the opportunity to tell Salem to go google something! Truely a landmark day in CProg history!

    I googled AEDebug, and the very first link is MS knowledgebase on how to disable Dr. Watson. I would imagine that would fix the problem.
