Data and diagnostics cannot be collected RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    our testers are getting the following error (copy from application log):


    The description for Event ID 0 from source VSTTExecution cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

    The following information was included with the event:

    (mtm.exe, PID 3260, Thread 18) MTR: Data collector error: "Unable to read event log 'Security' from computer 'DE-QA-107'".
    Likely cause: An error occurred with the following diagnostic data adapter: Event Log.
    Data collector type: Event log (datacollector://microsoft/EventLog/1.0)
    From machine: DE-QA-107
    Machine timestamp: 06/25/2010 08:49:44

    the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table


    This error occurs on 5 different machines. Neither the Tester nor the Test Manager said, that they've changed anything (it was working the last week). I've turned off the event log in the local test run for this test plan, but I guess that is only a workaround for the problem.

    I couldn't find anything helpful on Google, so maybe you can help me to identify the real error here?

  • Can you identify if any security settings changed on the machine. Since it was working last week and not working now..can you tell me if your IT pushed some patch or changed some priveleges.
