FATAL ERROR EVLxxxx: Failed to retrieve Style Sheet name from Repository: (Fallback): Win32 Error code 1444.

Symptoms 

You are using a legacy CCM Repository project. The first function that requires a connection with CCM Repository in your master template is the stylesheet function. When you compose a document, you receive the following error:

  •  FATAL ERROR EVLxxxx: Failed to retrieve Style Sheet <name> from Repository: (Fallback): Win32 Error code 1444.

Cause 

This error is triggered due to a defect in Kofax CCM 5.1.0 and earlier. When CCM Core executes the master template, the stylesheet function is the first call to CCM Repository from the run-time system (CCM Core). This first connection is not correctly initialized when a legacy project is used and causes the FATAL ERROR EVLxxxx.

Resolution 

This defect is resolved in Kofax CCM 5.1.1. Upgrade to Kofax CCM 5.1.1 or newer to resolve your issue.

Workaround

A workaround is to use another function before the stylesheet function that requires a connection with CCM Repository. For example text_block_exists. Add the following to the beginning of your master template and recreate your master template:

BOOL dummy := text_block_exists (“my_workaround”; 0)
