@kimaniThanks Kimani. I did not attempt the command prompt workaround, but creating the exclusion for msmdsrv.exe worked.

This doesn't work for me.  When I run the command from a command prompt, it comes back with "Reset not needed. Already running inbox binaries."


I'd love to have the two days back that I've been trying to get this to work...I could have written a lot of reports in that time...
