What is WER file?

A .WER extension stands for Windows Error Report file that is generated by Windows Error Reporting services. The WER file is a plain text file that captures the error information for both the application and the OS crash that has occurred. Further, based on this captured information an error report can be generated that helps the users to identify the problem for crashing. Further, the WER file when used in combination with other file formats, such as .mdmp, .hdmp, and .txt file provides additional information regarding the error. The WER file is generally stored at the following locations on Windows OS:

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WER file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the WER file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the WER file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the WER file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the WER file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
