EMC Crash with exception “FX:{A5406CA3-6393-48a0-8827-CF06F0C94C55}”

There has been many instances where the Exchange Management console crashes when I used to work on Exchange Servers, particularly on Exchange Server 2010. Most of the time the issue gets resolved when you end the task from Task Manager and launch a new session.

However, in this particular Exchange Server I was working with, the MMC kept on crashing throwing exceptions. This post provides the steps to resolve a similar issue.

The Exception I kept on getting is shown below :


mmc crash

This issue can be resolved with the help of a small .bat script..

All you have to do is in a notepad copy the below script and save it in .bat format.

set COMPLUS_Version=v2.0.50727
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Bin\Exchange Management Console.msc”

Execute the script and confirm the working of EMC.
