I got the following Error in my WXP Application Log after I tried to start a custom C# .net application

.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.42 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (7A05E2B3) (80131506)

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

Source : .net Runtime

Category : None

Event Id : 1023


I think this problem started when I removed the trail version of a C# Profiler [ from a vendor that I can't name under NDA ]

It seems that the profiler installed a hook somewhere to start itself whenever I start any C# / .net app.

Does anyone know where the hook could be installed I would like to remove the hook without reimaging my laptop....

Thanks !

To enable profiling you have to set in your Environment the COR_PROFILER environment variable to the CLSID of your NDA Profiler. If it has been removed you can simply go to your environment settings of your computer and remove the COR_PROFILER environment variable. That should do the trick.
