The data area passed to a system call is too small Error running paid AppStore app called "X410" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    OK - so I just activated WSL on my machine, and installed Ubuntu 18

    (bit of context: I've got a dual drive system where my windows drive is c: and my user profiles and data are on drive d:)

    so now I did some research about XServers, and decided to try out X410 from the App store.

    Just out of interest - I've used VcXrv on a previous installation; and decided to try something else on this installation.

    So, I paid for the app, and downloaded it through the store (I just clicked the "Install" button).

    Then - when I tried to run the app I get the following error message: -
    ===================================================================

    [Window Title]
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ChoungNetworksUS.X410_2.5.1.0_x64__vvzc8y2tzcnsr\X410\X410.exe

    [Content]
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ChoungNetworksUS.X410_2.5.1.0_x64__vvzc8y2tzcnsr\X410\X410.exe

    The data area passed to a system call is too small.

    [OK]

    ===================================================================

    Please let me know if anyone can help me get passed this error message?

  • when the report has already been send to Microsoft, it is moved to
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive
    But as there is no callstack in a .wer file, I never could find any use for them.

    here is an article for Ubuntu on WSL with the same error, so could be related:

    @David: do you have SQL server installed?

  • I would recommend that you contact X410 support.

  • Hi,

    Your device must meet all minimum requirements to open this product: Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher, Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher, Xbox One.

    Please check your version by running winver in search box.

    Here is an article about Error Message: Data Area Passed to a System Call Is Too Small. for your reference.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Yilia,

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    So I tried looking at WinVer. Turns out I'm running windows 10 build 17763.316 (which is higher than the version no you mentioned).

    Then - I looked at the article - but I could not find the "Cache ISAPI Applications check box" setting, (despite clicking on any option I could find for the default website).

    Sincerely,

    David :-)

  • That article is old and has nothing to do with your problem. It just happens to have a title that matches your error.

  • Check in this folder and see if there are any references to x410. 

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue

    If you find a report.wer file in an x410 named subfolder, open it with notepad and paste the results back here.

    I don't have any experience with Store apps, but I'm curious and wondering if we can identify the dll/API being called. That might help when you contact X410 support.

  • Hi EckiS,

    So I do have SQL Server (2012) installed, and it does have FileStream enabled.

    By disabling FileStream and rebooting, I can get the app to work.

    Thanks - your guess was spot on!

    Sincerely,

    David :-)
