Configuring remote systems for use with WhoCrashed
In order to allow WhoCrashed perform analysis of a remote computer on the network, the remote system must be accessible and configured accordingly.
Access to admin shares
The user which is running WhoCrashed should have acess to the admin shares on the remote machine to be analyzed so that the crash dump files on the remote machine can be accessed by WhoCrashed. If the remote system is running Windows 8 or Windows 2012 Server, the remote admin share is disabled by default and needs to be explicitly enabled.
Enabling the remote system for WMI
In addition to remote admin share access, WhoCrashed requires that a remote system is configured for WMI for crash dump analysis to succeed. This usually means that an exception for WMI needs to be present in the Firewall applet which is accessible from
the control panel. For more information, refer to the following MSDN article:
