Hi there, we are having trouble in a specific client's PC.

We get an error log and 'Configuration system failed to initialize' for each pane that is to be displayed. We are currently in the latest Add In Express for .net, we hoped this would solve the problem to no avail.
Any clues on how to proceed?


Here is the error log:

Hello Jose,

I suggest that you check answers at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6436157/configuration-system-failed-to-initialize. Note that the app.config mentioned in the first answer may be either your add-in's app.config or your add-in's host application's .config (e.g. winword.exe.config). Other answers may also be useful; please check all of them.

Regards from Belarus (GMT+3),

Thanks for the reply. I already tried all of those fixes with no luck...

Any clue on how to proceed? The app.config file is in my visual studio solution, anything to do there?

Kind regards,

Jose

Hello Jose,

Use info at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1127315/how-do-i-make-an-extension-xsd-for-the-web-app-config-schema to validate your .config file.

Note that the schema to be used depends on the .NET version *that loads your add-in*: in the Xml\Schemas folder of my VS 2017 I have these files:

- DotNetConfig20.xsd
- DotNetConfig30.xsd
- DotNetConfig35.xsd
- DotNetConfig40.xsd
- DotNetConfig45.xsd
- DotNetConfig47.xsd
- DotNetConfig471.xsd

Thank you so much for the support Andrei!

We finally made it work... It seems some how the user.config file got corrupted, this wouldnt allow PPT to load the add in or any of its taskpanes properly.

It was located under: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft_Corporation\AppData\Version

I just restored this file, my guess is erasing it would too work... And then, back to normal!

Thanks
