The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified or has an invalid value.


  • Explanation

    The rule for the Unattended Service Account Application ID failed. The ID does not exist. Visio Graphics Service


    To resolve this issue, the Visio Graphics Services administrator must provision the Secure Store Service, create a target application, and assign the ID of this target application to this setting. For more information about this rule, see " ".

  • Yeah, there is a drop down right under the article title for "older versions"  give that  try.
    What I usually do is once I get the data I print it out to PDF in case I need it again.  That way if the content is ever removed I at least have it.

  • Thats just ridiculous...Microsoft is on a dangerous slippery slope.  Some of the decisions they've made in the last 24 months have been either diabolical or ass hat rookie mistakes...and who knows which is worse.  It's just a fuked up situation, one that has me hunting for deep discounts on ky jelly in bulk.  The way their wagging that big dry dik of theirs, to and fro, is bound to blast asses far and wide...and by surprise.  I'm still in shock and sore as shit from that deep gut pounding they delivered in Exchange 2013...unless their strategy is to run Microsoft into the ground before our infantile government does the same with the country I can't imagine what they're thinking.
