    ************** 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.

  • perhaps you should read the error?
    your config file is corrupt, line 10 contains an invalid character.

    "MSI\SCM.exe" might be MSI System Control Manager by MSI
    so perhaps contact their support.
    simply deleting the user.config might also help: the program should then start with default values.

  • Hi mrmean77,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    >>System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Configuration system failed to initialize ---> System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 10, position 1.

    (C:\Users\Evan McGill\AppData\Local\MSI\SCM.exe_Url_zv0ikcohnhzptbjtykvepncdk0ijftla\13.16.6153.0\user.config line 10)

    According to your uploaded error messages, the issue is caused by SCM application, you could have a look at  the similar issue and have a try to achieve the error.

    In addition, if above method doesn’t work, I suppose you could perform a clean boot in Windows to isolate the cause of the issue.

    Hope all above could help you and any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Anna

  • Hi mrmean77,

    Sorry to disturb you.

    Is Anna’s suggestion useful for you to solve your issue? According to the link of similar case, not sure if this error is caused by third-party plugins or antivirus software. You could try this approach to perform a clean boot procedure to determine whether background programs are interfering with a game or a program that you currently use.

    In addition, I notice other members who have the similar issue seem to have this issue and point out that the issue might be caused by SCM application, you could refer to EckiS’s suggestion and check if this issue could be solved.

    BTW, could you share us with more detailed information so that we could better analyze.

    Hope all above could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Tianyu
