Troubleshooting Windows Management Instrumentation

The VisualSVN Server Manager console is based on Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) technology. Under some conditions, the WMI can become broken on your server. Corrupted WMI is usually identified by receiving the "Provider Load Failure (0x80041013)" error message when trying to start VisualSVN Server Manager.

Depending on your version of Windows, there are the following ways to repair/rebuild/reset WMI on your machine.

Windows Vista/Windows Server 2008

Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. Type the following command:

winmgmt /salvagerepository

The above command performs a consistency check on the WMI repository, and if an inconsistency is detected, rebuilds the repository. The content of the inconsistent repository is merged into the rebuilt repository, if it can be read.

Windows XP Service Pack 2

Click Start, Run and type the following command:

rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

This command is used to detect and repair a corrupted WMI Repository. The results are stored in the setup.log (%windir%\system32\wbem\logs\setup.log) file.

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1

Use the following command to detect and repair a corrupted WMI Repository:

rundll32 wbemupgd, RepairWMISetup
