If you are experiencing this error, while performing tasks within Unify, you will see a dialogue box with this message:
A Windows disk error is often termed as Hard error is thrown up by the windows operating system with a popup message requiring the user input to click continue or cancel.
- Microsoft recommends that you set the following registry key to avoid the chance of receiving messages.
- You have to go to the regedit from the run prompt: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows\ErrorMode Value = 2
Using Windows 7/Vista/8/10: Click the Start button (Windows icon interface) and in the search field type: regedit
Using Windows XP: Click the Start button (Windows icon interface) and locate the run function, then type: regedit
This will take you to the Registry Edit area:
- Select the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder.
- Select the SYSTEM folder.
- Select the CurrentControlSet folder.
- Select the Control folder.
Scroll down to the bottom of the list in the Control folder.
- Click on the Windows folder.
- Double click the ErrorMode file.
Modify the Value data to 2. Click OK and exit the Registry Editor.
- The value of 2 instructs the Windows NT operating system to avoid popup messages for any hard error on the system and return the default error condition to the calling process.
- This registry key is always checked before any hard error is received. Therefore, you do NOT have to restart the system after changing the key value.
- You can immediately reset the key back to 0 if any unexpected side effects occur.
- Note: No matter what the setting of the registry value, the CSRSS.exe process always logs the message details to the Windows NT Event Log.
