Broken .NET Framework in Windows 8.1


Recommended Posts

I've got a problem running the server emulator for NFS World.


This thing requires .NET Framework in order to work. It used to work just fine on my laptop, but it stopped after I reinstalled Windows. When I try to run the emulator, it displays a generic error message which says "The program has stopped working". I checked the system event log and I've found this entry (sorry it's in Polish):

Line P4 shows that the problem is related to something called mscorlib. I googled it and it's a .NET Framework component. I've tried removing .NET from Windows Control Panel, then using .NET Framework Cleanup Tool and reinstalling the Framework, but it didn't help. Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling the whole system?


My laptop is Lenovo y510p and it runs on Windows 8.1 x64.


EDIT: Here's a Process Monitor log: https://mega.nz/#!V0Uw0TZL!sHWBqgB2hdiEQXspmMO5YbMuDaLyRPt98Ga8Po_-xSw


EDIT2: The program works normally on another Windows account! That's strange...

That's not like one of the most specific error messages ever.

That just means .NET threw the exception, which is just what runs the program.


The only interesting thing is that "System.NotSupportedException" there (for example, I get System.IO.DirectoryNotFound when I just copy the executable with no additional folder).

While the only notable facts between W8 and .NET are these.

But for as war as my procmon log tells me, we are just talking of NET 2, also 4 at most.




I notice the program has <requestedExecutionLevel level="highestAvailable" uiAccess="false" /> in its manifest though.

Which.. at least on my account asks for admin permissions. I don't know on yours. 

Are you sure your account has all the required privileges then?

The problem is solved. As you said, there was something wrong with my account; I created a new one on my computer and there the program worked flawlessly. So I copied my stuff to the new account and deleted the old one.
