When attempting to create an extract on the unsupported Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (non-R2) operating systems, the following errors might occur:
"XML enumerated value cannot be encoded"
"The parameter is incorrect."

Alternatively, when refreshing existing extracts, the following error may occur: 
com.tableausoftware.nativeapi.dll.DataSourceException: Tableau Data Engine Error: 40610: The parameter is incorrect.


  • Tableau Desktop 10.1.4 or later versions
  • Tableau Server
  • Windows Server 2008 (non R-2)
  • Windows Vista
  • Excel


Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (non-R2) are unsupported workarounds. Please note that starting with Tableau 10.3, we will begin blocking installations on these operating systems. See Release Notes.
