If Opening Reports gives a Fatal Error in an MFT File

Post by jovivier » Mon Aug 17, 2015 2:48 pm

An MFT error occurring when opening reports is caused by some anti-virus software. We have seen this with some McAfees updates:-

This error will only be seen when the report is more than a few pages long and seems to be caused by the size of the temporary file as the report is being rendered.

To fix this issue set an exception or exclusion in the anti-virus for *.MFT and *.MF* files.
A computer restart may be required before the exclusions are applied.
