Unhandled Exception in the System Center Essentials 2010 console when running a task against an agent

Applies to: Microsoft System Center Essentials 2010


When running a task against an agent in the System Center Essentials 2010 console, you may receive an error similar to the following:

Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)).

When you click Continue the task completes.


This is known to occur if Internet Explorer 9 is installed on System Center Essentials Server.


This error can safely be ignored. To workaround the issue simply click Continue when you receive the error and the task will complete successfully.
