You may encounter problems when you use the Absconfig.exe tool

Posted by Mino on February 2, 2010

When you install OCS 2007 RTM resource kit and you try to run the ABSconfig.exe, you get the below error

ABS Configuration Tool -Error
Exception: System.ArgumentOutofRangeException: Value of ‘6/17/2008 6:30 AM’ is not valid for Value.  Value should be between ‘MinDate’ and ‘MaxDate’.  
Parameter name: Value

at System.Windows.Forms.DateTimePicker.set_Value(DateTimeValue)

at ABSConfig.MainForm.WMIConfigInit().

and then also you get the error  :ABS is not enabled or activated on this server (to enable set the WMI outputlocation to null)

The problem is explained in the KB Article 954749  and Hotfix for the ABSConfig.exe is available for download.
