  1. Cannot run powercfg /batteryreport. Error 0x408


    Hi,

    Windows 10 x64 1903

    I cannot run powercfg /batteryreport from an elevated command prompt. The error:

    "C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg /batteryreport
    Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error 0x408 has occurred: null"

    Diagnostic Policy Service is running.

    Power service is running.

    Ran:

    "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth"

    To no avail.

    Ran:

    "sfc /scannow"

    To no avail.

    Tried running "powercfg /batteryreport" command from another admin profile, to no avail.

    "Powercfg /?" returns the list of commands. Some commands produce the same error, others do not.

    :)

  2. Error 0x422 on running powercfg /batteryreport from Administrator Command Prompt


    Cannot run powercfg /batteryreport. Error 0x408 ee00e146-330d-4846-83d3-191f844a89d0.png


    I run on Windows 10 Home Single Language.

    The command worked twice previously, but mysteriously stopped functioning later on, giving this error.

    I've also tried powercfg /batteryreport /output C:\some\path\here.

    I've checked this thread, and have not received a plausible answer.

  3. Error 0x422 on running powercfg /batteryreport from Administrator Command Prompt

    I know this is an old thread, but I had the exact same problem and error message, so want to add the solution that worked for me as this is the top search result for the error message.

    After a bit of searching, I discovered to check whether the "Diagnostic Policy Service" in services.msc is disabled. It was disabled on my machine. Once I enabled and ran the service, I was able to run a batteryreport.

  4. Cannot run powercfg /batteryreport. Error 0x408

    Powercfg /batteryreport missing values in all capacity fields.

    Hi Sebastian,

    It may have something to do with the Region Format setting in Windows. Try this workaround and see if this resolves the issue:

    1. Go to Control Panel.

    2. Under Region, click Change date, time, or number formats.


    Cannot run powercfg /batteryreport. Error 0x408 b1b78c11-9f77-48e1-b482-08aedc246ea6.png


    3. Click the drop-down arrow under Format: and select English (United States)
    and Apply.

    4. Run powercfg /batteryreport again and check if the missing values have been added.

    Thanks.
