    unable open Log CBS file.

    Can someone please advise me how to open this file so i can maybe get a
    clue as to why SP1 download failed.
    Using Cmd prompt administrator, "findstr /c:"[SR]"
    %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt" after enter no details
    appear.Just goes back to the prompt. Have protected files unchecked
    Thanks.

    Hello John,
    First
    Nothing is displayed to the screen when you direct the output using > symbol
    You just return to the prompt so the log file may contain the information
    So check if the log exists and if anything is in it.

    There may be some delay before the file is available after the scan is run..
    First try running it without the log file redirection
    "findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log
    This outputs to the screen, so if there are any errors when it runs we can
    see them, plus see if any output exists to write to the log file
    This shows that output exists as well as any potential errors when running.

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

    Thanks for taking the time to reply The log file has 1.8 MB and the
    Persist log has 50.0MB
    copied and pasted your suggestion but it was rejected saying the file
    name,directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect" with my level
    of experience with this procedure you could paint the error black and i
    wouldnt recognize it. I was just hoping to get excerpts of the log for
    posting so some one might see the problem. Thanks for your effort

    Re: unable open Log CBS file.

    Hello,
    There was a leading quote that wasn't supposed to be on the string
    Removed the quote mark.
    This is run from the c:\windows\logs\cbs folder
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log

    Thanks,
