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

enabled.

 

For example:

 

<configuration>

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

</configuration>

 

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.

 

Resolution

 

- In the exception details found :

 

System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Configuration system failed to initialize ---> System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Root element is missing. (C:\Documents and Settings\nbkvx9a\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft_Corporation\LandingPage.exe_StrongName_ryspccglaxmt4nhllj5z3thycltsvyyx\10.0.0.0\user.config) ---> System.Xml.XmlException: Root element is missing.

 

- Deleted the Microsoft_Corporation folder from location C:\Documents and Settings\nbkvx9a\Local Settings\Application Data

- Then tried the install of SQL Server 2008 again and this time SQL server install passed the .NET Framework exception

- This folder was getting created by American online software installed on customer box
