Using dbghelp.dll version 4.0.5.

Applies to: SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition.

Problem Description.

On one of the SQL Server 2012 instances on my organization that is used by SharePoint 2013, I found many entries on the SQL Server error log with the following description.

Date 2/12/2015 2:33:53 PM
Log SQL Server (Current - 11/20/2014 11:24:00 AM)

Source spid85

Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'.



This entry on SQL Server error log is related with the Database Performance Metric Provider feature of SharePoint 2013. The feature is not available on SQL Server 2012 and that is the reason the error message appears on the SQL Server error log. Initially disabling Database Performance Metric Provider stop the entries to appear on the SQL Server Error Log.

The fix for this issue was released on Cumulative Update 12 for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 and Cumulative Update 6 for SQL Server 2012 SP1. You can download them on the following URLs:

Cumulative Update 12 for SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2.

Cumulative update package 6 for SQL Server 2012 SP1.

For more information, please read the following resources.

Microsoft Connect Item - Extended events and dbghelp.dll.

SP2013-SQL2012 - Database Performance Metric Provider Timer job - Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'.

FIX: "Using 'dbghelp.dll' version '4.0.5'" error is logged in SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2008 R2 when a statement or job executes the sys.fn_xe_file_target_read_file stored procedure.
