Launchpad Crashes on Start, Error CLR20r3

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

For the last few months I've had a problem on my client Windows 7 64 bit machine not being able to run the Launchpad.  Dashboard works perfectly fine, so I've just dealt with the issue, but I'm curious as to why it would occur.  I've copied the log file below showing the errors.  Unfortunately it's gibberish to me.  Appreciate any help or insight, I have been searching online for answers and haven't found anything that duplicates this error.  I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the connector several times with no luck.  Thanks!

I found a reference to an issue with Themes. Are you running a particular theme on the Win7 computer? Did you change the theme around the time the LaunchPad stopped working?

Also, try repairing .NET Framework 4.X

I am using DisplayFusion and Rainmeter for my display, so that may be the Theme issue??  But otherwise I'm just using a standard theme from Windows.

 

Tried repairing .NET and reinstalled, still wouldn't start.  Thanks for both the options.

Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the connector software

If you installed DisplayFusion or Rainmeter around the time you started having problems, I would uninstall one or both and see what happens. Oh, and repair .NET 4.x ;)

Unfortunately I can't remember what I installed back when it stopped working.  Wouldn't that be nice :-)  I'm hesitant to uninstall those as it was a pain to get my desktop set up in the first place, don't want to lose the configuration (damned if you do, damned if you don't).  Ended up doing the following: removed connector from the PC, went in to the dashboard on the server and removed the PC completely, and finally uninstalled .NET completely.  Restarted both the server and PC.  Reinstalled the connector on my PC (which reinstalled .NET).  Now I'm getting an error on the PC that I can't log in to dashboard at all.  It's a 'Unable to connect to your server' error.


But ironically, Launchpad works now.....

This is where Server Backups come in really handy. I have an external USB drive attached to my server that holds the scheduled backups of the server's OS drive only. If I need to much around with the OS at all, I can always restore from the backup in less than 30 min.

I have the same thing, although in this case I think it's the client.  Now the connector install won't run.  It gives me an unexpected error right after asking for the server password.  Do you have the steps to manually delete any remnants of the connector on the client?

Edit - Found the files I was looking for and deleted, deleted the registry entries for launchpad as well and still getting the errors.  Tomorrow I'll try rolling the server back to sometime a couple days ago and see if I can get the installer to run.  Same error on the client 'Cannot connect this computer to the network' and 'An unexpected error occurred, for more information, see Troubleshoot etc.'
