Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool: Turn on MSDT interactive communication with support provider

This policy setting configures Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) interactive communication with the support provider. MSDT gathers diagnostic data for analysis by support professionals.

If you enable this policy setting, users can use MSDT to collect and send diagnostic data to a support professional to resolve a problem.

By default, the support provider is set to Microsoft Corporation.

If you disable this policy setting, MSDT cannot run in support mode, and no data can be collected or sent to the support provider.

If you do not configure this policy setting, MSDT support mode is enabled by default.

No reboots or service restarts are required for this policy setting to take effect. Changes take effect immediately.
