Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) gathers diagnostic data for analysis by support professionals.
If you leave this policy setting enabled, Users will be able to 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 will not be able to 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 will be enabled by default.
No reboots or service restarts are required for this policy to take effect: changes take effect immediately.
