Dr. Watson is a program that traps program faults and generates a snapshot of the operating system. Application developers use such error reports to clean bugs. If this is Dr. Watson then developers are Sherlock Holmes.
Dr. Watson can also provide a crash dump file, which a developer can load to a debugger and examine it.
Once you start Drwatson.exe on Windows 9x it will start logging. You will also notice that it puts an icon in the system tray. Figure 336 shows how Dr. Watson looks in Windows XP; Figure 337, Windows 98
