Error: “Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation”

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hey, TechyV!

I'm attempting to get a hotfix for this error as suggested in the Support page in the Microsoft website. However I'm apprehensive about the result as it is recommended to wait for the next .Net framework containing the right hotfix. Can anybody recommend another solution for this error? Thanks for any suggestions, more power to TechyV!

Hi WilmaR,

The root cause of this error is that system32 had been moved off the original path. You simply have to add back system32 to the path variable and this will resolve this issue.

This error also happens when you had windows update enabled and you have not installed Visual Studio 2010 SP1. There is a .NET 4 Framework in Windows update distributed recently that generates this conflict. To resolve this issue you need to install the Visual Studio 2010 SP1. You can find the required Visual studio 2010 Service pack 1 at the following location.

Hope this will solve your issue.
