[4.14.3] No crash logs in Windows/wer/ReportQueue folder


From the wiki: Locating Project Logs, when unrealEngine/packaged game crash, there will be crash folder including crash log and datas created in the folder:

Since we upgraded to 4.14, after crash, there were no crash folder under the Reportqueue folder any more, but crash report dialog still show normally.

We use some script to watch the folder change to send alert mail, it could not work now.

Is there any change for the crash report logic ?


I’ve found the reason.

from the unreal engine 4.14 release log.

Removed use of Windows Error Report API from engine crash handling. Fixes cases where WER settings in Windows could block UE4 crash report system.
