Install fails
« on: September 02, 2014, 01:16:45 AM »
I'm a tech and I'm getting this error right after installation on a LOT of systems, including my own (all Win 7).

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Thoughts? :(

No...it goes back to one or two other versions, I believe...but I can't remember how far back. I haven't been able to use it all this summer and most of the spring. I'd be happy to try some old versions if you have them.

This is just a guess, but I think the problem has something to do with .NET. I sure wish the author would address it or at least give us some kind of workaround hints.

We will look into this, but it appears to only be happening on a very small set of machines.
