Hi Fellow Developers,

I have created a Dot Net Windows application for my brother. It reads .jpg files and extracts exif information from them and then saves that information into a .csv file.

I have written it on a 64 bit machine. He either has a 64 bit, or a 32 bit machine. I'm not sure which. He runs Microsoft Vista. I run Windows 7.

I have built the dot net application using the target platform of x86, so I don't think that is why I am getting the following error.

Any and all advice on how to get the app to run on his system, is greatly appreciated.

All the Best to You!

just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

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


For example:


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


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.

RE: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

Hi Fellow Developers,

After some searching, we found the solution.

I simply had my brother install the following:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.as... ProPhotoTools.msi

His system did not have Microsoft.ImageMetadata references in it.

All the Best to You!
