Could not load FASTContent, check your permissions or event log.

There are also errors in the event log such as this one:

Login failed for user ‘DOMAIN\user’.

Solution

The user running the SPDocKit Snapshot Wizard or SPDocKit PowerShell module needs to have the proper privileges to retrieve information from the SharePoint farm.

Follow these instructions to configure your SharePoint farm.
