an error occurred - Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC

This looks like a godsend of a tool as I have to document our whole CRM system, however I get an error when running it for Forms: an error occurred - Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC The program starts to document the Account Entity Form and seems to finish it as there is a grey box at the bottom but then throws up that error and stops. Any ideas how to fix this? The tool works fine for Scripts and Picklists

Sorry - I should have pointed out that I am using Excel 2007 and the rest of the Office 2007 Suite. I do also have PowerPoint 2010 (Beta) installed, I don't know if this would have any adverse affect. Operating System is Vista Business 32 bit

Stacko111 - have you tried exporting only one or two entities and trying those? - try just exporting a configuration file for your contact entity and a different one with just the account configuration. then try either of those - maybe that can narrow down the issue -

Also if you have a 'vanilla'/unconfigured XML file you might try that just to see if it's related to the installation or to the CRM Configuration.

Hi SSEWELL, thanks for getting back to me.

I tried exporting just the Account Entity, then just the Contact Entity then the Account and Contact Entities together but all three threw up the same issue - very frustrating!

I've also just tried to import an unconfigured XML file and got the error again. I guess this means its an issue with my PC, I will try it on someone elses.

Ok I installed it on another machine and it worked perfectly so it looks like it's just somethign not right on my machine. Not a problem, I have the information I want now - thanks!
