Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131942

My team was working on some pretty tight deadlines when this beauty showed up on a suspended message:

Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131942

That was all that was there–nothing else.  A quick web search turned up a few articles, with most pointing to something going on in the maps.  However, there are apparently a number of issues tied to this exception.  

In our case the  cause of this exception was trying to use “”  (empty quotes) to represent an empty string inside of a functoid.  You need to make sure that you just leave it blank.

Easy, right?  As usual, the exception doesn’t always point to an obvious answer.  This is just one more thing to check for if you see it.

Also, thanks to Yair Z for a post that helped point us to maps.  Obviously, we had a different issue than he did, but you might find his info regarding xsl:imports useful if your cause of the error wasn’t the same as ours.
