Hello,

Currently I'm working on a Window Installer for an .NET 1.1 application. I'm taking all the .NET 1.1 DLL and the .NET 1.1 executable, and use the Visual Studio 2005 Setup project to create an installer. The installer is then used on a windows 2000 SP4 machine. All the files are installed, and Depends.exe is used to check if all dependencies are resolved (and they are resolved). When the executable is run, an error occors, without much information. When the Visual Studio 2005 de**** is used, the error is:

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' occurred in Unknown Module.

Additional information: The type initializer for 'App.ModMain' threw an exception."

When WinDBG is used to run the executable, the error is:

Microsoft (R) Windows De**** Version 6.6.0003.5

Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

CommandLine: "C:\Program Files\App.exe"

The call to LoadLibrary(ext) failed, Win32 error 127

"The specified procedure could not be found."

Please check your de**** configuration and/or network access.

Because I checked the dependencies of the executable, I'm pretty sure that I have all the neccecary DLL's installed.
All the reports on the newsgroups on 'System.TypeInitializationException' didn't give me a solution which works.
I've tried to change the security permissions of the .NET 2.0 framework, but this did'n change anything.

Can anyone give me a hint were the problem could be

You need to look at the InnerException property of TypeInitializationException.

Lucien,

Thanks for answering. The problem is that I only have the DLL's and the executable, and not much more. The output I posted is all information I have, so unless there is a method to get this information from WinDBG, I can't look at the InnerException.
