Active Directory Replication Status Tool crashing

Contributor

Hi,

 

Some recent .Net update broke the app. It crashes right after the splash screen.

 

Application: repl.exe

Framework Version: v4.0.30319

Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Exception Info: Microsoft.Sirona.PackagingException

  at Microsoft.Sirona.Packaging.PackageHelper.ValidatePackage(System.IO.Stream, System.String, Boolean, Boolean)

  at Microsoft.Sirona.Packaging.PackageManager.LoadInternal(System.IO.Stream, Boolean, Boolean, System.String, System.String, Boolean)

  at Microsoft.Sirona.Packaging.PackageManager.Load(System.String, Boolean, Boolean)

Exception Info: Microsoft.Sirona.PackagingException

  at Microsoft.Sirona.Packaging.PackageManager.Load(System.String, Boolean, Boolean)

  at repl.MainWindow.LoadConfiguration(Microsoft.Sirona.Configuration.ConfigurationManager)

  at repl.MainWindow.SetupSironaComponents()

  at repl.MainWindow..ctor()

And also this:

Hi David,

I tried to run the version you shared on my laptop, running Windows 10 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1889) but the AD Replication tool doesn't open.
.NET 4.8 is already installed.
Here is the error on Event Viewer:

"Faulting application name: repl.exe, version: 3.22.415.100, time stamp: 0x62593e89

Do you know anything about this?

Thank you.

Best Regards,

I have  version: 3.22.415.100 installed as well on Server 2016. It worked a couple of months ago when I installed it so yes something has broken it again. This page says to report issues here in the wiki I suppose in the comments.

Thank you, Dave.

Best Regards.

Having the same issue and I have .NET 4.8, enabled TLS 1.2 on both Client/Server registry settings and still...just a splash screen and same event viewer information as the above posting from Vandrey. Here's another thread with more folks exclaiming the same issue:

Crashing for us too. We have July 2022 version 3.22.415.100 installed on Windows 2012 R2, 2016, 2019, 2022 and 10 21H2. All have .NET 4.8 and the latest 2022-10 Microsoft Updates.

Suprised that MS hasn't updated the tool yet.  Have you tried the fix on editing the Microsoft.Sirona.dll listed in the Reddit URL I posted?
