McAfee Application Control (MAC) 6.1
Microsoft Windows (all supported versions)


MAC 6.1 experiences an issue that can lead to slow performance and failures. You may observe the following:
  • Performance degradation while running operating system features when the application is in Update mode
  • Blue screen errors or application failures when in Enable mode


The Solidcore logs display errors similar to the following when the issue occurs:

ERROR: inv_store.c :  203: Error reading item from file: bytes read 0x0000000000000030: requested 0x172
ERROR: inv_partial_sync.c:  983: Error reading item from transaction log: err 1012 (0x3f4): The environment is incorrect
ERROR: inv_partial_sync.c:  850: NEW: in Partial sync read log entry, err = '1012'
ERROR: inv_volume.c: 1718: NEW: Partial sync failed 
ERROR: inv_volume.c: 1421: Failed in apply_txn_log_from_file, err = 1012


The issue can occur when merging the kernel mode inventory to the on-disk inventory fails. The inventory is the file that contains the entries and information on whitelisted files.


This issue is resolved in MAC (and later).
