Error: Incorrect syntax near ','

Updated August 30, 2017


This article describes a possible cause and workaround related to the following error:

Incorrect syntax near ','


  • NCM versions 7.x


Most likely, the OS language is not supported by NCM, or region settings are not correctly set.


Check that the OS language is supported by NCM. If yes, do the following on the main Orion Server as well as every Additional Polling Engine, Additional Web Server, and SQL server to work around this error:

  1. Open the Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\
  3. For every user (SID), navigate to the Control Panel\International key and set the sDecimal value to '.' (dot). The path should look like this:
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Control Panel\International
  4. Restart the machine.
