  • Question

  • Hello,

    One of my custmers has created a XPS document by giving read permission policies using Active directory right management services to everyone. but when it is opening in the some of the XP machines it shows error which is given below. Also in some of the Windows 7 machines in the browser it is appearing as document is right protected.but not able to view the same.

    Troubleshooting methods done in XP:

    1. Installation of XPS essential pack for XP is installed

    2. .Net framework 3.0 sp1 is also installed.

    3. Except XPS all other application such as word excel and other office application, ADRMS policy is working perfectlly.

    The error which is displayed as follows

    "XPS Viewer EP cannot open this document because this version of Microsoft Windows cannot be validated.

    Detailed error information: Could not create Drm environment.HRESULT(-2147168391, 0x8004cf79, E_DRM_PLATFORM_POLICY_VIOLATION).The rights management processor has failed."

  • There is only one registry entry that relates to the XPS error :)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/.NetFramework/Windows Presentation Foundation/Hosting

    DWORD: RunUnrestricted

    Value: 1

    Plus hope you have done a microsoft update not just a windows update
