    ************** 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

    For example:

        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

    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.

    The buttons at the bottom function normally.  I have reinstalled the program twice with no change to the problem.

    Need help!

  • can you try to reinstall .NET Framework and then reintsll sync toy to see if it works?

  • I have reinstalled both .net framework 2.0 sp1 and synctoy2.0, with the same results.

    If .net 2.0 is needed for synctoy, why are .net 1.0 files installed when installing snyctoy?

  • Sync Toy v2.0 needs .Net Framework 2.0, but .Net framework 2.0 requires .Net 1, and it installs it by itself.

  • That answers the .net framework question, but I still need to deal with the error message.

    Any help solving that, would be helpful. Thanks

  • Can you tell me what version of Windows are you running?  and on what Architecture? (x86/x64).

  • I am running win xp Home sp3, x86.

  • Hi Again


    This looks like a problem with your Windows installation and/or your web browser.  Another thing that could be causing this problem is your user account privileges.  Are you running SyncToy as an administrator?

  • Yes, this is a one user computer and I am the administrator.

  • Hi again


    This does not seem to be a SyncToy issue.  Like I mentioned earlier it looks like a problem caused by Windows, your web browser, or .NET Framework.  Something must have gotten corrupted on your computer settings and is causing this.

    I was looking for other things that could be causing the error you saw and ran across this link in Microsoft Help and Support Site.

    Here they mention this error is thrown when an user does not have the correct permissions to execute the application, and present a workaround to fix the problem.


    Please try this, and let me know if it helps.
