An instance of this object is returned by the ComponentLoadFailedEventArgs.Information property.


This example shows a ComponentLoadFailedEventHandler. A loop iterates through the failed components. And RenewSystemComponentsAsync is invoked. Note that the RevocationAndRenewalInformation is passed in through the ComponentLoadFailedEventArgs.

function ComponentLoadFailed(e) {

    for (var i = 0; i < e.information.items.size; i++) {
        LogMessage('Component Name=' + 
                    e.information.items[i].name + 
        LogMessage('Failure Reason=' + 
                    e.information.items[i].reasons.toString(16) + 
        LogMessage('Renewal GUID=' + 
                    e.information.items[i].renewalId + 

    //  Invoke the revocation               
        function (r) {
            LogMessage("RenewSystemComponentsAsync: " + 
                        r.toString() + 



Items Items Items

Returns a list of components that need to be revoked and renewed with updated components.

public IVector<RevocationAndRenewalItem> Items { get; }public IVector<RevocationAndRenewalItem> Items { get; }Public ReadOnly Property Items As IVector<RevocationAndRenewalItem>

List of components that need to be revoked and renewed.



If there are no entries in the list, it indicates that basic system components are compromised. In that case, recovery can be attempted by invoking ComponentRenewal.RenewSystemComponentsAsync.

If there is a single entry in the list, the entry may indicate that the system’s revocation list (active.grl) needs updating. This usually means that the content protection system requires updates of components. This is often the first indication that components need updating. Recovery can be attempted by invoking ComponentRenewal.RenewSystemComponentsAsync.
