It is some kind of Jet Database error and will probably be replaced by a different error at next update |:

I have been receiving the errors for:

Catalog Database (13848,D,35) Catalog Database: The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 | JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat).

In that order

It appears that the databases here: C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 are the ones being referenced

I have two databases in there:

Event ID 642 Databases

Containing:

Event ID 642 Databases

An excerpt from my DB error log from there reads:

Stopping the Cryptographic Services and deleting the two folders has reduced the number of errors.

Following on from the above, after taking that action (I just stopped the Cryptographic Services and moved both DB folders into a new folder I had created called Old and restarted the service.)

After restarting the Cryptographic Services service, the proper EDB files appeared as can be seen here:

Windows\system32\catroot2 log files created properly

So presumably there was a serious problem compared to before as these files were not present.

They disappeared again!!

The log files disappear when you restart the Cryptographic service again - so they will presumably disappear at restart.

Windows\system32\catroot2 restarting cryptographic services twice

Stop the service, remove the DB folders and the log file, then restart and we see these files created:

Windows\system32\catroot2 just after cryptographic services restart

What the heck?

Still get the errors when restarting the Cryptographic services:

How does Windows 10 reliably track the following?

Provides three management services: Catalog Database Service, which confirms the signatures of Windows files and allows new programs to be installed; Protected Root Service, which adds and removes Trusted Root Certification Authority certificates from this computer; and Automatic Root Certificate Update Service, which retrieves root certificates from Windows Update and enable scenarios such as SSL. If this service is stopped, these management services will not function properly. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Yes it is definitely a jet db looking at those log files, but why it is never happy with the files it creates I am not sure. As for deleting the files but not recreating them, it seems as though the log file versions never match the edb files or something like that. I’m wondering if the cryptographic service works at all or if I should just disable it.

It could always be restarted when an update containing root certificates is required.

Just as an aside, when I look at my own Windows 10 Ent addition, I can see that this folder is populated with EDB files indicating that the Jet database is running correctly, but I have not had to restart the cryptographic services today to achieve this.

The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database - format 1568.20.0 | Event ID: 642

The PC has been powered up for some time though.

I see the 642 ESENT errors on the same minutes past the hour, but the number of hours seems to vary??? Anxious

My version that appears to work well, but does seem to switch between populating the catroot2 folder and not (and which currently looks so)

The database format feature version 9180 (0x23dc) could not be used due to the current database

Is this version:

Well they seem to be under the same condition as mine, which has a third different version number.

How often are you seeing the event IDs?

I seem to get a spate of them and then they subside for 90 mins when I see:

I think we need to admit it comes and goes with the lack of jet database files.

Looking at me dberr file in there - which doesn't give a lot of activity recently and in no way seems to account for the presence or absence of files here:

It does have an entire week without any activity at all and then shows that MS Office made a few changes yesterday.

Currently the folder is empty of files though:

Anxious

Most enlighteining.

So does this mean that the cryptographic services really cannot create the database anymore?

Catalog Database (18160,D,12) Catalog Database: The database format feature version 9080 (0x2378) could not be used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 | JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat).

There is no database now, so surely it could create one?

Same here - Windows 10 version 20H2

Now when ~I restart the cryptographic services I get the Event ID: 642 error for when it checks the database version on startup of the service, but it does not create any files or do anything as far as I can see.

It just decides the DB is wrong and then it stops processing altogether.
