UDDI 3 Configuration crashes when clicking on the Web Application page

When setting up UDDI 3 on a BizTalk multiserver configuration, the configuration tool might crash when clicking on the Web Application page. The following message will be logged in the event log:

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    BizTalk DW Reporting
Event Category:    None
Event ID:    1000
Date:        2010-02-06
Time:        23:17:15
User:        N/A
Computer:    CONTBTS2K9

Faulting application configuration.exe, version 3.8.368.0, stamp 49b1da6c, faulting module configframeworkhelper.dll, version 3.8.368.0, stamp 49b1da6b, debug? 0, fault address 0x000823ba.

The reason for this error is that the account used to run the configuration tool is not local administrator on the SQL Server used for UDDI 3.


  1. The account I'm using to run the config tool IS a local admin on both the servers constituting the SQL Cluster. Also made sure the user has sysadmin rights and all on the server. Still no luck: UDDI config still crashes!

  2. Does the configuration tool crash at the same time as described in the blog post? I.e. when clicking on the Web Application Page link? What do you get in the event log?
