Here’s another KB we published this morning.  This one talks about an issue where creating an MDT based task sequence fails with An error occurred when loading the task sequence and logs a 0x80041002 error in TaskSequenceProvider.log:

Symptoms

After clicking the Finish button when attempting to create an Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) task sequence, the task sequence may fail to create with the following error:

The TaskSequenceProvider.log may also show errors similar to the following:

Cause

This error can occur if the MDT WMI classes are not properly registered.

Resolution

To resolve this issue follow the steps below:

1. Close all of your remote and local SCCM admin console sessions.

2. Log on to your Configuration Manager server and select Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft Deployment Toolkit -> Configure ConfigMgr Integration.

3. In the Configure ConfigMgr Integration wizard, select “Remove the ConfigMgr custom action definitions” and then click next to remove all the definitions.

4. Re-run Configure ConfigMgr Integration again, and select “Install the ConfigMgr extensions”

Once you do this try creating the Task Sequence again.  It should now complete successfully.

More Information

This error occurs because the BDD_* WMI classes have not been correctly registered under the \root\SMS\site_<sitecode> namespace in WMI.
