McAfee Profiler 2.0 will not read MPR file

McAfee Profiler 2.0 collects data and produces an MPR file, however, it cannot be read back in.   Profiler complains the file is damaged or corrupt.    It appears fine in a text editor as XML.     

Using ePO 5.10.0, ENS 10.6.1, HIPS P14

Re: McAfee Profiler 2.0 will not read MPR file

Hi @ccastbr 

Thanks for posting on the Community.

I'm afraid I can't reproduce this issue and I've also not seen any other customers report the same. I would suggest potentially redownloading the Profiler Tool and checking if you get the same results on a few machines.

Re: McAfee Profiler 2.0 will not read MPR file

I had my user try again and a new result file was returned that I was able to read.   The difference, from what I can see, is that the "damaged" result file is missing the XML command at the very end.

Typically the file ends with

</profiler><!--  HexNumbersMakingAHashofSometype  -->

The file that could not be read was missing the comment and hash.    I do not know how that is calculated or if I can recreate what is missing, but it is only important to know if I encounter another file like this.
