I've installed mrtg version 2.17.4  with PERL version 5.14.2 32 bit on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit box.

The graphs are updating and all the target devices are reachable by SNMP and verified with a snmpwalk that the community strings were correct prior to running the cfgmaker command.

My system is repeatedly generating this error message  but doesn't give me any clue as to what device is being the cause of the problem ( if it is one of the polled devices and not something else).

Mrtg is installed at c:\mrtg-2.17.4
And Perl at c:\Perl
