Configuration system failed to initialize MS NET framework


#1

I have installed WebODM and receive this error: Configuration system failed to initialize.
Entire details of error copied below.

Screen clip of error message:

I select Continue and WebODM did start and I was able to begin processing images. However, still run into another issue where there is no indication that the task has completed (another issue to note in a later topic).

I use FireFox browser and use Windows 10 professional.

Copied details of erorr below:

************** 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:

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.

Hey @Mur :hand: thanks for reporting the problem. It seems as this problem happens when upgrading from an older version of WebODM Manager. I think it’s due to a recent update. I have reverted the installer files to a previous version, if you re-download the setup (press the link from your e-mail) and install it the error should go away.

If it doesn’t, please let me know.


#3

Hello @pierotofy. My apologies for the wait. I did install the version you supplied in the weblink. I received what I think is the same error. I copied it out full below:

And to verify I used the correct WebODM version:

#4

I see. I’m going to investigate this further. In the meanwhile, could you try to close WebODM Manager, navigate to C:\Users\colin\AppData\Local\ and rename the MasseranoLabs_LLC folder to MasseranoLabs_LLC_old, then restart WebODM Manager? Does it allow you to go past the error?


#5

Also, would it be possible to get a copy of this file? C:\Users\colin\AppData\Local\MasseranoLabs_LLC\WebODMManager.exe_Url_vbkwkh5snaj4zd3epqkhzpzasirbawl3\1.5.7.0\user.config

It would help me troubleshoot this problem.

@pierotofy
I seem to be making some progress following your instructions.
WebODM Manager is now downloading WebODM. I also received a “checklist” window before the Manager window opened and the download started. I will update you when the download ends or when I get back to the office later today.

Config file can be downloaded here:
