Windawesome Failing After .NET Upgrade


This week, my system administrator upgraded the .NET framework on my machine from the previous deployment of 4.5.2 to version 4.6. I was very unhappy to see this error when starting my previously functioning Windawesome configuration. I'm trying to debug myself, but I'll post the error here in case this is a common problem that others have seen.

Any chance someone could debug this? I started using bug.n as a replacement and I'm worried I'm going to punch a hole in my screen soon.

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get an email for the first post.

Google told me that the problem might be in the CPU/RamMonitorWidgets. Could you try removing them from your config file and see if that fixes the issue?

Great Scott, you've done it!

Removing the CPU and RAM monitoring gadgets from my toolbar configuration solved the problem.

Windawesome is back up and running on my office workstation!

Thank you very much! I don't know how much longer I would have lasted using bug.n.
