ReAgentC: Operation failed: 3

RakheshSasidharan asked on


I am running Windows 8.1 with Update 1 on a laptop with BIOS. 

ReAgentC was working fine on my laptop until about 4 days ago. I know it was working fine because I used it to prepare the recovery partition of a Hyper-V VHD on this laptop. However, from the next day or so whenever I run ReAgentC I get "Operation failed: 3". 

C:\Windows\System32>reagentc /info
REAGENTC.EXE: Operation failed: 3

REAGENTC.EXE: An error has occurred.

Both SFC and DISM report no errors on my system:

C:\Users\rakhesh\Desktop>dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.3.9600.17031

Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031

No component store corruption detected.
The operation completed successfully.

Any suggestions on what the problem could be? I am guessing I must have corrupted some setting when using ReAgentC for the VHD but I checked the ReAgent.XML file, the System partition, BCD ... and all seem to be fine. Am happy to post output of these if that helps.
