SCE 2010: Error message when running Collect Inventory

3:20 pm in Uncategorized by Valérie Siroux

Installed System Center Essentials 2010 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 server.

When trying to run Collect Inventory or Detect Software and Updates Now I received the following error:


************** Exception Text **************
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

…. Output Omitted for readability …


Searched for hours, and finally found this topic:

which suggested to uninstall IE9


So, I uninstalled IE9 and it worked !


Uninstall IE 9 by going to Add /Remove Programs and list all updates.

Remove the Internet Explorer 9 update.

IE 9 will be downgraded to IE8 after a reboot.
