    It seems like KB 976034 (detailed power report) does not work correctly on 32-bit versions of Win 7.

    I always receive an "unexpected" error.

    On a 64-bit version the report works nicely from the 64-bit powershell, but generates an error from the 32-bit powershell. I used powershell to quickly check whether it might be a 32-/64-bit issue.

    BTW it’s a localized version of Win 7 (german).

    Can anybody confirm this?
