CD is "Change Directory"

From Command Prompt you have to navigate to that location.

cd\
cd Program File\Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)\ and Hit Enter

Hope this helps,

Starting with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows Error Reporting (WER) can be configured so that full user-mode dumps are collected and stored locally after a user-mode application crashes. Applications that do their own custom crash reporting, including .NET applications, are not supported by this feature.
This feature is not enabled by default.

Enabling the feature requires administrator privileges. To enable and configure the feature, use the following registry values under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps key

hi,

I have run the cscript adplus.vbs ... (actually I've only found and used the file adplus_old.vbs to my application that runs as python.exe and this openned 3 consoles (because there are 3 python.exe running).
Unluckely, running like this doesn't reproduce the crash because it makes my application to run a little slower.
Anyway, when I've restarted the system and run my application normally (without this cscript) it stopped working. I've already uninstalled and installed my app, what does this cscript did?
