Windows 10 will install but will not open VB.net Windows applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a VB.net windows application using VS2013 with .net framework 4.5. Windows 7 client computers have no problem installed it and launching it. Windows 10 clients can install it with no error but will not open the application after. Try google it and found many postings about this issues with Windows 10. I still cannot have it fix as a result I have to tell my client to put Windows 10 upgrade on-hold. The version of the Windows 10 is Windows 10 Pro. Thanks

  • So, do you get any error message when you try to launch the application from within Win10?

    Just curious... what happens if you select .Net 2.0 as the target in you application

  • There is no error message when try to launch it. I even try to open it "run as administrator" and it will not open. I checked the .net version in the computer and it has diff version of .net framework installed (3.5 SP1, 4.5 and 4.6). I have not switched it back to .network 2.0 as I need to download install it. Thanks

  • I'm thinking you'll need to do a .Net Framework restore operation.   But first, take a look at the Application Event Log to see if there is anything of interest.

  • Hi,

    For your problem, I just make a supplement. Since there is no error message, you can also try to use Process Monitor to capture the trace while starting the app. This method could help us make deep research with this problem.

    You can access to the link below to download Process Monitor:

  • I found the error. But I do not know how to fix this....

    In the Application Event Log

    Application Error Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100)

    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\KERNELBASE.dll

    Try to change the DEP (data Execution Prevention) to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select" but it is still not working...
