Hey all,

Just wanted to check with you guys. Has anyone gotten an error message for event viewer windows-USB video/Analytic?

Windows could not start the Windows Event Log service on Local Computer.

Error 4201: The instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a WMI data provider.

I haven't changed permissions in WMI to see if it fixes the issue but I wanted to check if others got this issue also.

Thanks

Ok friends,

Here is the fix I tested.

If you want to apply this fix:
1) Save a copy of your registry
2) Copy this reg command in a text file and save as Fix for WMI Viewer USB Video Analytic.reg

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\PnpResources\Registry\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels\Microsoft-Windows-USB-Video/Analytic]

Reboot and try the viewer again, should work (well until next update and MS will mess it up again :rolleyes: :wink:

Hi,
thank you so much for helping me solve the problem.
The solution you proposed worked wonders.
I would just add that for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\ PnpResources\ Registry\HKLM \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels\Microsoft-Windows-USB-Video/Analytic" you must change the permissions, otherwise the change will not you are allowed.
Thanks again.
