CopyFromComputerList.exe error message

(imported topic written by jfschafer)

Saw a window this morning on my Bigfix 8.1.551.0 server that said CopyFromComputerList.exe has encountered an error and will be closed. Wondering what that is and if it’s something that needs corrected or a new bug. Only seen it once so far but we’re just recently on 8.1.551.0

Did you upgrade to IE9 by chance?

No. Not yet.

I saw the same problem today.

OK… here’s the scoop: CopyFromComputerList.exe is no longer needed in 8.x (and, more to the point, not compatible with 8.x) as you can use the Copy Text With Headers feature that was introduced in 8.0.

So, if you installed a right-click option in the past that uses that utility you should back out. Sorry for the confusion… I’ll log a bug to the effect of “8.x needs a fixlet that discovers incompatible 7.x right-click extensions.”
