Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

Hi,

Win2003 Server Sp1, Windows Scheduled Task, running daily.

I'm running an exe under a WindowsScheduled Task. The task runs daily.  After running this event is logged in the Appliation event log.  Has anyone seen this before on Windows 2003 server?

Here's the Event:Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1524
Date:            6/10/2008
Time:            3:02:41 PM
User:            CRSDEV04\CRSFiles2HseSen
Computer:      CRSDEV04
Description:
Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.  

How serious is this?  it comes up as a Warning in the Application Event log. What is the solution?

Thanks,
Paul

I wouldn't worry about it.  I get the same error running our weekly defragment task on all our servers.  As far as I can see it doesn't cause an issue.  You may want to try the "User profile hive cleanup service" - see MS http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=1B286E6D-8912-4E18-B570-42470E2F3582&displaylang=en

Thanks Compaq,

I've installed the UPHClean and it has eliminated the 1524 messages and reduced the time to unload the profile from 10 mins to about 5 seconds.

Right now I'm only seeing one warning message, Event ID 1517.  I have a question on EE about that too.  it's here:

While this wasn't the exact solution, it did help out in that applying it reduced the time the system needed to correct the "unloading" issue and provided some peace-of-mind that others had had this kind of issue and used this utility to solve or at least mitigate the impact.
