Qlik Compose: ‘undefined’ error while generating ETL instructions.

Qlik Compose: ‘undefined’ error while generating ETL instructions.

Generating ETL instructions (both basic and all validations) for a data warehouse task fails at random for different tasks with the following error:

Undefined error

Clicking on more details shows no additional information. The same task will generate the instructions successfully at a different time. 

This may occur after an upgrade of the Snowflake ODBC drivers (for example from 2.24 to 2.25.11).

As a troubleshooting step, turning up the Qlik Compose logs to verbose does not capture the undefined error, but the Windows Event logs show a crash of the Qlik Compose service. 

Review the Windows Events (Application) log for Application Errors. Opening the log reveals an error such as:

Faulting application name: ComposeCtl.exe, version 
Faulting module name: SnowflakeDSll.dll
Exception code: 0xc0000005



A defect in the 2.25.11 Snowflake driver is causing this issue. Downgrading to 2.25.6 resolves the ‘undefined’ error and prevents the crash.

See Snowflake ODBC Driver Release Notes.
