I have a program that runs on windows XP using .net 3.5 framework family. After many reinstalls using the redistributable package, the bootstrapper, and windows updates, when launching the program i get "".exe has encountered a problem and needs
to close. Event viewer shows this:
.Net Runtime 2.0 Error
EventType clr20r3, P1 "".exe, P2 2010.1.1012.1, P3 4c6168a1, P4 system.configuration, P5 126.96.36.199, P6 4889de74, P7 277, P8 14, P9 ioibmurhynrxkw0zxkyrvfn0boyyufow, P10 NIL.
There are also these errors in event viewer, that only showed up after installing using Windows Updates.
.NET Runtime Optimization Service (clr_optimization_v2.0.50727_32) - Service reached limit of transient errors. Will shut down. Last error returned from Service Manager: 0x80029c4a.
I followed the advice in another msdn support request, http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/netfxsetup/thread/f56cc6e4-c2bf-490c-b87b-3e22b1e6b935 that suggested running:
%windir%\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe queue status
and the requested output of the update command returns:
Error loading type library/DLL. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80029C4A (TYPE_E_CANTLOADLIBRARY))
