#529410 New to it, have read the other threads about errors trying to figure it out. Deleted config file, no help, tried uninstall/reinstall didn't work either :(. Hoping for a look/see and shoot back some ideas to fix. Thanks.

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.

#529417 Laptop, nothing but the occasional USB headset. If you care (or have time) to teamviewer the problem I'm open to that....or anything else to help out with getting Vstars operational on this machine.

thx for the timely responses!
By Lee Sacharin 1228141
#529436 Tired it both ways.....no luck. Any other suggestions? Vstars originally worked (even though I'm very new to it) a few days back. I think Win 10 did some auto-update (dunno what it was though), and now no luck at all. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall several times with no joy either. I may look back and to a previous restore point (windows) and see what results that may bring. Will report back. Let me know if you wish to move this to PM or remain a thread.

#529535 Ok, got it fix. Wasn't the firewall as I already had that opened. Maybe not orthodox but I searched my computer for the vstarsconfig.xml file and found it in a few different places. Most were dated recent, although 1 was from 2017. I was thinking mine might be corrupt or damaged in some fashion. I copied/pasted the older one over the new and walla….works fine.

Thanks for the help in solving this. Looking forward to Vstars!
