Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Question

After upgrading scanner on my WHS 2011 box to 2.5.3000 beta to match the Win 7 box I upgraded in response to my last issue, I have suddenly starting getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" appearing in a Covecube troubleshooting box every time I open the Dashboard in WHS 2011. After I send the error report to Covecube, the Dashboard will open for a minute or so, but it eventually closes itself. Any ideas? I assume the error relates to scanner, but I am also running DrivePool 1.3.7572. I have not changed the DrivePool version for a long time, though.

 

Thanks,

 

Wonko

Wonko,

 

Could you do this: 

http://wiki.covecube.com/StableBit_Scanner_for_WSS_Error_Reports

 

After doing that, could you see about doing this (just in case):

And then wipe Scanners settings?

I have submitted the Error Reports. The Scanner service is running, but there is no corresponding process to create a dump file from, at least once I have started getting the Object reference error every time I open the Dashboard. Rebooting stops the problem for a little while, but it comes back eventually. I will try wiping the scanners settings as well.

I wiped the Scanner settings and rebooted. 2.5.3000 just showed "Initializing" and never connected to the service, even after subsequently uninstalling and reinstalling 2.5.3000. The only way I got 2.5.3000 to work again was to uninstall it, install 2.5.2968 and verify that worked, and then reinstall 2.5.3000 over 2.5.2968. I hope the Error Reports provide some insight. Thanks.
