SyncToy 2.1 don't even run after installing Service Pack 3 in Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • As it said in title I've upgraded XP to SP3 from SP1 and SyncToy don't start. Just Windows show me arrow with hourglas and it ends. SyncToyCmd is little more informative - it prints:

    Unhandled Exception:
       Cannot print exception string because Exception.ToString() failed.

    I've repaired installation, reinstalled, removed all components and SyncToy and again install it - it not help at all. What should i do?

  • Hi Linda,

          While you tried to repair install the SyncToy, did you also remove the Microsoft SyncFrame work core componets too?

    Does that not help either?

  • Sorry I didn't post here. Yes I tried remove everything and even clean SyncToy AppData folder. Nothing helped.

    But few days ago I installed some .NET related updates and SyncToy starts normally. It works now but folder pairs looks strange: when all files are identical SyncToy show 1 hour difference in times. I think it's because when I reinstalled SyncToy pairs was not synchronized. But it works now ^^'
