Gentlemen/ Ladies:

 

First here are my spec of my sony laptop :

32bit/ Vista Ultimate SP2 / 4GB RAM memory/ solida state HDD 350GB/ intel chip 2.6GHZ/

 

I ran into wdi service host and wdi system host errors, that my laptop shutdown itself.

 

So, I did a sfc/scannow, it came back stated: found some errors but unable to repair/ fix by itself.

 

I was able to locate the CBS log, but unable to open/ read the file by note-pad or any other tool, unable to copy either....

 

Tried:

1. type cmd at start, run as admin,

2. findstr/c: "[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log>sfcdetails.txt

3. copy %userprofile%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\desktop\cbs.txt

 

Can anyone help me:

 

HOW TO FIX ERROR triggered by wdi service/ wdi system host ?

 

How do I open the CBS so that I can see what happened ?

 

Many thanks

Two more.

 

This will place the log on your desktop.

 

Type in cmd in the search box.

 

copy and paste findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt then press Enter.

 

If that fails,right click on the Start orb, click on Windows Explorer, click on C:, click on Windows, click on Logs, click on CBS. 

 

 

Click on the CBS file with the date of the scan you want to view.  The text folder will appear, click on it.  In the menu that opens choose desktop, then click on Extract.  This will place the file on your desktop.

It turns out that those instructions to open Windows Explorer will work in Windows 7, but will not in Vista.  Use the method below to open Windows Explorer and then follow the previous instructions for accessing the CBS log.

 

Open the start menu and type in Explorer in the search box.

 

Windows Explorer will appear in the results, click on it to open it.

I tried that, actually and surprisingly, it took me to my "document folder",.....don't know why. And it's NOT there either.

Have you looked at your desktop to see if any of the scripts used placed an icon for the sfc log there?

I did....nothing on the desk top.

 

Also, as I previously mention, I typed CBS ( microsoft start button-where i can type/ start search, the CBS will pop up on the top of the start button, where I can see clearly, there are: CBS (19.2 MB) , CBS log (61.1 MB) and CBS persist file (148kb only) , but when I tried to click to open or "tried open with"...I can't ...

 

it is very frustrating.....

Are you using an elevated command prompt for these suggestions?  To do this you need to right click Command Prompt (or cmd.exe) and choose "Run As Administrator".  Below I copy this file to my c:\Temp folder where it can be read normally with any text editor:

By the way, I've got an ongoing issue with sfc similar to this in Windows 7.  sfc insists there are "pending repairs" and to run it again after re-booting, but of course they are never resolved.  I didn't find anything that helped me solve the problem with sfc in the log though.
