If you install the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 6.0, and you run a large inventory job, you may find that it takes a long time to complete. If you have hidden the inventory status window, the MAP console will provide limited functionality until the inventory process is completed. Attempting to perform certain console functions may yield the following error message:
The task processor is currently busy. You cannot perform this operation while the task processor is running. Please wait for the task processor to complete or cancel the task processor before retrying this operation.
There isn’t any menu option to simply stop the task processor, so you’ll need to choose File –> Exit, which will prompt you to stop it.
