|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||User '%3' failed to create external configuration store at '%4': %1 (%2)|
The virtual machine configuration module (also called the "store") is contained in the vsconfig.dll file. Ensure that the path to the vsconfig.dll file is valid and has the right permissions. By default the vsconfig.dll file is installed at \\windows\system32.
Check that the VMMS service is in the running state in the Service Control Manager and that the failed operation now succeeds.
