Very Odd Problem, programs crash unless DIR name changed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a number of .net programs that yesterday were running fine but today wont

    as an example i have a program in C:\Development\Live\Feedback.exe that ran perfectly well 2pm yesterday
    my initial thought was that the file was corrupted so i recompiled and copied it over the top of the original

    still didn't work

    so next i copied the entire directory from the release folder and tried to run it
    Success
    so i deleted the old folder and renamed the copy to the same name as the orginal and tried to run it again
    Failure
    renamed the folder
    Sucess
    Restored the name
    Failure

    what ever the problem is it seems to relate to the name of the folder that the program is in
    with this one example i shrugged it of as an unimportant mystery however i have since noticed the same problem with a 1click application that i've been using for over a year with out issue

    the only error message is the report problem to microsoft box popping up
    with
    EventType : clr20r3     P1 : feedback.exe     P2 : 1.0.0.0    
    P3 : 4b9529e0     P4 : mscorlib     P5 : 2.0.0.0     P6 : 4add54dc     P7 : 37a0
    P8 : 26     P9 : system.security.xmlsyntax
