WebInpect10.1 crashed with the error


While trying to open the WebInspect application10.1 on my Windows 7 machine, it got crashed with the following error,

"WebInspect has stopped working. A problem caused the program to  working correctly. Please close the program."


When examined the event logs, found the folowing error logs over there.


Log 1:

Faulting application name: WebInspect.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x51a8ff1a
Faulting module name: clr.dll, version: 4.0.30319.18444, time stamp: 0x52717e84
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP WebInspect\WebInspect.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\clr.dll

After this, I upgraded the .NET framework to 4.5.1 and it was working fine for sometime. Later on i re-started my machine and again started facing the above problem with same error logs


Anyone's help in resolving this problem is much appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Re: WebInspect 10.10 crashed with the error



This will probably be too messy to resolve in a forum.  You should get in touch with HP Fortify Support at http://support.fortify.com.


It seems that something has corrupted or altered the registration of one or more of your DLLs used by WebInspect.  Sometimes a reinstall of the same version of WebInspect on top of the current install will re-register everything for you, especially with the relatively recent "Repair" option.
