Dashboard won't launch RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought WHS a week ago and noticed today that the dashboard won't launch anymore. I have no Add-ins installed (only the default Microsoft supplied Add-ins). Below is an entry in the event viewer. Any ideas?

     

    Faulting application name: Dashboard.exe, version: 6.1.8800.16385, time stamp: 0x4d6ed249

    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17651, time stamp: 0x4e21213c

    Exception code: 0xe0434352

    Fault offset: 0x000000000000cacd

    Faulting process id: 0x108c

    Faulting application start time: 0x01cc57cdcac57cc8

    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\Dashboard.exe

    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\KERNELBASE.dll

  • I went to the windows update site and there were .NET updates available. I downloaded and installed the newest updates to .NET and the system re-botted. I tried to run dashboard again and it still doesn't work. Here is a more detailed report from the event viewer. I'm not a very experienced windows, .NET, C#, or WPF programmer, but this event looks like a coding problem in the Dashboard. Is anyone else having trouble with the dashboard?

  • This happened to me late last night.

    I don't have the answer for you, but after the "Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64 based Systems" was pushed out late last night, several things happened.

    1/ All 6 PC's and both of my WHS 2011 boxes downloaded and installed this update (among others) - Note I have 5 PC's to 1 WHS and 1PC to 1 WHS.

    2/ All of the "System.ServiceModel 4.0.0.0 - Performance Counter" errors in the Event Viewer disappeared, stopped occurring on bootup.

    3/ All PC's had the problem launching the dashboard.  None would launch.

    What did I do, I shut everything down, every switch, router, cable modem and started it back up starting with the cable modem, router, switches, servers, pc's, then printers, in that order.

    Everything works.  FWIW.
