Windows Backup - The backup application coud not start due to an internal error: You must be logged on as an administrator to perform this task. (0x8100000010).

Windows 7 users in my domain are unable to configure or change backup settings.  Users are able to open Control Panel > Backup and Restore, but when they click
Change settings, they receive the error: Windows Backup - The backup application coud not start due to an internal error: You must be logged on as an administrator to perform this task. (0x8100000010).
The same error is received when executing sdclt.exe /configure at the command prompt, regardless of whether the command prompt is launched using "run as administrator".
I've done significant testing, and have been able to determine that the local administrator account is able to configure backups before the computer is joined to the domain.  Once the computer is joined to the domain, the local administrator account
and domain users who are in the local administrators group are no longer able to configure backup and restore.  Domain administrators are able to configure backups.
This is a new issue, which began occuring sometime in the last 2 months.  3 months ago, users were able to configure backups without issue, and those computers with backups configured are still able to run their backups and do restores; however the
settings can no longer be changed. 
Clearly something in the domain is doing this, but Group Policy has not been altered, and I can find no setting that would be doing this in any case.  Any help is appreciated. 

Hi,
So you mean you have tried different accounts in the local Administrator group and all of them failed?
If so, please check what group the local Administrator group belongs to? Does it belong to a group with limited privileges, such as the Guests group?

  • The iTunes application could not be opened. An unkown error occurred (-50).

    I was using iTunes with Windows 7 without problem. I recently updated to the latest version of iTunes (Version 9.2?) and now everytime I try to start up iTunes I get the message "The iTunes application could not be opened. An unkown error occurred (-50)." I tried everything in the Online help section of the Apple website for Windows 7, including "repair", deleteing iTunes and reinstalling, and nothing works. What is going on? Does anybody else have this problem?

    Thanks. I actually looked at some of your previous advice on problems with Windows 7 and I disconnected my computer to wired and wireless networks, closed all programs, started CHKDSK and rebooted the computer and that solved the problem. iTunes is running perfectly so far. Unfortunately, I wasn't paying attention when CHKDSK finished and didn't get to see the report so can't let you know what it actually did, but it accomplished what all the the other solutions I tried did not (set up new user account, remove/replace preferences, remove/replace libraries. remove/reinstall iTunes, etc.).
    Thanks again for your attention to this issue.

    I feel for you -
    When I installed the 8.0.1 patch on my iMac, I noticed that iTunes quit working correctly after importing some new tracks. It would not quit. I had to force quit but then it would not open correctly the next time and it would not quit. From that point on, my computer went down hill. When I installed the latest security patch and executed a reboot, the system would not come up. I used my 10.5 DVD and repaired permissions, etc. Nothing worked. I booted off my backup drive and everything works fine.
    Even on my backup drive iTunes will not come up. I don't get an error but the Dock icon says "Application Not Responding". I renamed the iTunes folder and it created a new one on initial startup but it just hangs. I deleted iTunes, rebooted, re-installed iTunes and have the same thing.
    Tonight I experienced the same issue with iTunes not quitting on my MacBook Pro !

  • The Itunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occurre 130104

    Hi
    I opened Itunes and got this error message exactly as it appears here. "The Itunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occured (130104)"
    Could someone help me get my itunes back to normal.
    Its probably a simple problem, but I haven't done anything (that i know of) that could have caused this. I have just been using my Macbook as i normally use it.
    It would be interesting to find out why this happened as well.
    Thanks in advance!

  • The iTunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occurred (-50)

    Today, I downloaded the latest version of Itunes.
    When it finished installing it came up with the following error:
    "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 127)". I have uninstalled iTunes, and all related Apple software and re-installed iTunes several times and still I get the same error.
    I contacted Apple support and was sent two emails. One detailing what needed to be uninstalled and then a web site to go to where I could download and install Microsoft's latest .NET Framework, which apparently was the root cause of the problem.
    I did as instructed:Use the Control Panel to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order:
    1.iTunes
    2.QuickTime
    3.Apple Software Update
    4.Apple Mobile Device Support
    5.Bonjour
    6.Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later).
    Restarted the PC and then downloaded the latest version of Microsoft's .NET Framework - version 4.
    Restarted the PC again and received a strange message from some Apple application I have never heard of stating "CoreFoundation.dll file is missing".
    I GOOGLEd the message and found out I also needed to unistall another Apple application called MobileMe. So, I did this and restarted the PC again!
    I then downloaded the latest version of iTunes, again.
    Now I'm getting "The iTunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occurred (-50).
    From checking through GOOGLE, I believe it's something to do with user accounts and iTunes not being able to find the music folder???? But the answers I found all relate to Windows 64 pit PC's.
    I am running Windows 7, 32 bit on a Sony Vaio laptop.
    I cannot get support from Apple as I don't own a MAC. But I do own an iPhone but it's out of warranty.
    HELP !!!!
    Can anybody please help me?
    Thx

    If you go to the web page "http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923" and follow the "Verify iTunes and related components are completely uninstalled" it does the trick. There are few other folders and files that alos need to be deleted!
    iTunes is now working.

  • The itunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occurred (-42023)

    I have just tried to open iTunes and keep getting the message "the itunes application could not be opened. An unknown error occurred (-42023)".  I've tried deleting and reinstalling iTunes, still with the same error. I've tried restoring iTunes from Time Machine, still with the same error.  The error message appears to refer to an error downloading a purchase but I haven't made a purchase.
    Every fix seems to start with "step 1:- open iTunes" but I can't do that as I just get the error message.
    I'm running OSX 10.6.8 on a core duo iMac, was using iTunes 11.0.2.  All software up to date accoring to software updater.  I haven't made any software updates since the last successful access of iTues and getting this error.

    Here's an article that lists error -42023 twice and therefore may be helpful:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3297
    I believe these are the appropriate actions (from the above article):
    Delete your iTunes Downloads folder, located in:
    Mac OS X:
  ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Downloads 
    Note: "iTunes Media" may appear as "iTunes Music. Also, the tilde (~) refers to your Home directory.
    After locating your iTunes Downloads folder:
    Quit iTunes.
    Delete the Downloads folder on your computer.
    Open iTunes.
    Choose Store > Check for Available Downloads.
    Enter your account name and password.

    Usually this points to having some kind of earlier trial version still installed on your system. However without more details you are not likely to find an answer. Try this for a start:

    My suspicion is a damaged Apple Application Support. Although they're given for different messages, I'd try the 32 or 64 bit instructions from the following topic (depending on whether or not you're 32 bit or 64 bit ... there's instructions on how to determine which you are in the topic too):

  • Error 244: The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error.

    I have LabVIEW 2010 and, during Windows start-up, this error message pops up:
    "The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error.
    (244): Please wait till the National Instruments PSP Service is running and try starting the DataFinder again or reboot your computer."
    I have had this error message pop up for the past year so it is a recurring thing. It started showing up a few months after I had installed the LabVIEW program onto my computer, so I am not sure on what caused this message to consistently pop up. I find that it also causes a delay in the starting up of my computer--my other start-up applications will begin to show only when I close the error window. Please help! Thank you.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    Hi xcontradictorx,
    It sounds like the National Instruments PSP Server Locator might not be started. Could you go to Control Panel >> Administrator Tools >> Services and locate the National Instruments PSP Server Locator? Double-click on it and make sure that the service is started. If it is, stop it and start it again (just by hitting the stop and start buttons). If it is not, start it, then go to the Recovery Tab and choose Restart the Service as the action for First, Second, and Subsequent failures. 
    If after change the settings for the PSP service the issue continues I would think that for some reason the PSP service is just being started late for some reason. Could you do a test real quick: disable the DataFinder in msconfig, reboot, then run the DataFinder.exe from C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\DataFinderDesktop\bin. This should place the MyDataFinder app in your system tray (it looks like a yellow gear). 
    If this is successful, then we will need to change the order of startup services such that the DataFinder just starts after the PSP service. 
    Try the following: 
    1) Locate the DataFinder entry from the registry. Located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 
    2) Delete the DataFinder entry 
    3) Add a shortcut of DataFinder.exe to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup 
    4) Reboot 
    This should do all the standard Windows Startup (like starting services, etc.) and then launch the DataFinder. 
    One question: do you use the DataFinder at all? Either with DIAdem or the Data Finder toolkit? If not, you could try removing it from the Startup items. Just go to Start >> Run... and type "msconfig". Choose the Startup tab, locate DataFinder, and deselect it. Click apply. This will probably get rid of the error message.

  • Error: The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error

    Hello,
    I get the same error message every time I reboot my Win 7 PC:
    "National Instruments DataFinder"
    "The DataFinder cannot start due to an internal error."
    "Please wait till the National Instruments DataFinder Index Service is running and try starting the DataFinder again, or reboot your computer. "
    I tried finding a DataFinder Index Service in the Control Panel --> Admin,istrative Tools --> Services, as mentioned in this post http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Error-244-The-DataFinder-cannot-start-due-to-an-internal-error/td-p/...,
    but there was none such listed service:
    I cannot find any mention of a DataFinder or a DataFinder Index Service anywhere else on my PC. Can you please help to find out where this error is coming from and how to fix it? As far as I am aware, I do not use this DataFinder. Thanks!
    Regards,

    Hello BrandonVonk,
    The toolkit wouldn't show up in your installed programs list as it is more like a plugin to LabVIEW. Instead, pull up NI License Manager and go to Local Licenses > LabVIEW XXXX > Toolkits and see if it is listed amongst the toolkits you have installed. There should be a geen box next to it to indicate that it has been installed and activated.
    Hope this helps,
