Computers with specific software registered in Add Remove Programs


Getting this error :

The attempt to connect to the report server failed. Check your connection information and that the report server is a compatible version.
There is an error in XML document (1, 427479).
'�', hexadecimal value 0xFFFF, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 427479

So I have never had the problem myself, I only talked to the product team about this issue.


IMO, they could have fixed it one of two ways:

  • Fixed the SQL view to remove double byte characters
  • Update the client to remove double byte characters listed in ARP data


Worse case is that they update the Client, this means that you will have to wait until the client has been rolled out and they report back hardware inventory. So a week or two..


Let me know how it goes.
