Unhandled exception - Error creating the Web Proxy specified
« on: January 03, 2016, 04:47:23 AM »
Hi,

I've been having issues with the above. PatchMyPC will not open in a working state as a result.
I don't have any proxy settings set on my system to my knowledge (at least not in Internet Options > LAN Settings) so I'm not sure what web proxy is being referred to.
Details of the error message below.

Any help would be appreciated if this is my end. I want to be able to use PatchMyPC again.


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.

Apologies, not sure how I missed your reply months ago!
It no longer happens. I'm not sure what changed but various updates to Windows could have made the difference as I did not install an updated version of Patch My PC at any time before it started working again.

Patch My PC updates itself automatically :) and we made a lot of changes since you posted this.
Let us know if there is any other problem :)
