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]

>Hello Darrell
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

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,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
