bug, or limitation of PC due to permissions in Win2000

Postby SpicyChronos » 01 Oct 2006, 00:51


I get this message, everytime I attempt to open up a saved game, on a work PC.

is there a way around this, or a fix could be done?

Code: Select all
See the end of this message for details on invoking
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.

The problem could come because:

- you try to open a file located on intranet or local network (solve: copy the saved game to the same directory of the program)
- you try to open a file already opened (solve: be sure not to open the saved game while the emulator is running with the same saved game)
- something else i don't know, let's see if it could be one of the above problem first :)

Okay, I was able to sucessfully load my map disk.

I had to copy the Utility and the Map disk to the local C: drive.

Microsoft .Net has a high security level by default. It can be changed later in the .net configuration manager, but it's confusing at start.
