Can't open my SLX file in TD : Code 0x8004232b

RussR

I worked on my image in TD, closed it, shut down my pc and went home for the
weekend.
When I came back Monday morning, I noticed that I could not open my slx file
in TD any longer.

It gives the following error:
An error occurred while opening file: C:\.......
Code = 0x8004232b
Description = An internal CMI error occurred. For more information see the
application even log.

The application even long has this:
The CMI encountered the following error: 0x8004232B (-2147212501) Method
CMI.CreateFromFile failed.

Looked through the group and re-installed Windows Scripting Host, but it did
not help anything.

Any ideas guys? I spent a lot of time on the image and it sucks to start
over.

Thanks,
Russell

Ouch.

Russell,
You're welcome to zip the SLX and mail it to the team at wecrt at
microsoft.com. I'll see if there is anything obvious that caused it to
become corrupt, if so i'll mail it back 'fixed'. Like I said, i've never
looked into one of these before so it's possible it's just hosed, but i
would like to resolve this once and for all. In the mail you send, refer to
this thread and provide details in the mail, i'll get back to you as soon as
possible.

You need to send it asap since i'll be OOF at embedded devcon all next week.

Thanks
Andy

Andy--hate to be a nudge--but its has been a month... Has there been any
resolution to this issue? I have several examples of it myself.

TIA,

Andy:


This is a purely TD issue. Reproducible pretty much on demand in several
different .SLX files. This is a relatively well known and presistent XPEsdk
problem--there are about 2-3 postings on the issue or what sounds to be a
related TD -issue every month or so in the XPE newsgroups for at least the
past two years. [Google is your friend!]

Now: We start with an SLX that builds a "known good" OS/system image--e.g.
there was a valid dependancy check & build process that produced an OS image
that is in hundreds of deployed HW systems running 7x24x365. The .SLX file
is *NOT* corrupt--the file compares O.K. to its Master.

We load the SLX file. We upgrade components. These is a 50% chance of a
CMI error during the upgrade process. If not, we Dependancy Check, resolve,
rise/cycle/repeat and finally save the .SLX--without error. Now we try to
load the .SLX file again and:

Error Dialog when importing an SLX that saved w/o error:

+---
[Microsoft Target Designer]
Configuration Management Interface (CMI) Error
Code = 0x800a01c9
Description =
+---

....and then a secondary error message that there was a "problem opening the
..SLX" --Thanks!

The problem:

The error makes upgrading XPEsp1 to XPEsp2 basically "Dead in the water".
Given that rebuild a fresh image from start is a two man-week or so process,
with no guarrentee that the new "clean SP-image" would not be impacted by the
some issue, my choices are:

(1) Get Microsoft to fix its tool or find a workaround.

(2) Convince my management, and our end customer, that they "Really want to
stick with XPEsp1/QFE'ed/Hotfixed for the next couple of quarters. [until
there is some action on (1)]

John,

I don't have a fix for you but I just wanted to mention that if you totally stuck with upgrading images from SP1 to SP2 and you
absolutely need to do so, you can try and use CMIExplorer (VALUEADD folder on XPe CD).
It is not TD so the result upgraded SLX may not show the bug you are referring to.

I'm going to give it a shot. But this seriously is "not good"...

I'm also running some investigations as to when the "Tipping Point" is in
TD. Also--last year there was a similar stiutation what was caused by a
"Poisoned QFE" involving an IIS component--inclue the QFE component in your
Iamge--boom CMI error.

Since I have to show something to the management soon--I think we are going
to be shipping another SP1+Hotfixes image!
