    I haven't. Did you upgrade from a preview version of WMF5? You could try deleting C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\DSCStatusHistory.mof and the contents of C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\ConfigurationStatus\ , and see if the problem goes away once DSC has applied configurations again.

    Thanks Dave, that did the trick!

    I uninstalled Preview, rebooted and then installed RTM, so not exactly an upgrade. There must have still been some left over bits from Preview.
