I've had one other report of this same issue, also from a user on XP SP2. Are you able to install SP3?

Do you both have the .NET framework 3.5 installed?

I am now having the same is report in this thread. I have used vSTARS before on this machine with no problems. I recently put in 4GB of RAM, upgrade from 2GB, other than that I have no idea what changed.

1) vSTARS 1.0
2) Windows Vista 32bit
3) AMD Turion 64(x2) 2GHz
4) 4GB
5) nVidia GeForce 7150M/ nForce 630M
6) Driver# 7.15.11.7991
7) "Could not initialize ScopeTextRenderer:
Only data-contract classes (and lists/arrays of such) can be processed (error processing List'1)
8) Occurs on program start. Have tried launching as Admin, and in XP compatible mode, no luck. Have uninstalled/reinstalled, rebooted as well.
9) Have been able to use vSTARS successfully w/o bugs prior to this. VRC still logs on ok.

.Net 3.5 or 3.5.30729.01

I've also installed version 4.0, but still get the same error message.

Edit: I've unistalled .Net 4.0 and "repaired" 3.5 using the .Net uninstall/repair option. Now I am getting this error message...
"The following error occurred while attempting to load configuration object:
Configuration system failed to initialize."

After a full uninstall of .net 3.5 and a reinstallation, vSTARS works flawlessly again. I suspect it is because of a corruption or change in the .net framework. I installed a new anti-virus/PC repair program that may have changed or deleted some .net value or files.

My recommendation for anyone else having this problem is to download .net 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=21), uninstall the old program, and reinstall it. That's what worked for me.
