Error | EventType clr20r3

As errors go I found this one is pretty horrific.

I got the error deploying a windows service written in .net 3.5 from my Vista x86 dev rig, to a 2003 x86 server.  Only having the .NET runtime installed on the server I wrapped the service up in a deployment project.  The service installed fine, however when trying to start the service I got a "The service did not respond in a timely manner" error.  Initially, like you would, I thought there was probably an error with my code in the OnStart method, but alas nothing in my beautifully crafted exception logging framework(!), over to the event viewer and this little beauty!

The complete error is...

EventType clr20r3, P1 <servicename.exe>, P2 1.0.0.0, P3 4816d837, P4 system, P5 2.0.0.0, P6 471ebf0d, P7 36d5, P8 7f, P9 system.argumentexception, P10 NIL.

The error is titled...

.NET 2.0 Runtime error. (Which through me a little, I'm on .net 3.5!!)

After some intense googling I have pretty much "Jack", no clear answer from the MS forums, despite input from MSFT staff.  Something that kept popping up was that I was referencing something in the framework that wasn't installed on the server.  So I checked every reference manually on the server, I even thought there might be a problem because some of the .NET dll's on my machine are in "/ProgramFiles (x86)/...." the server not being x64 didn't have this folder so, I created it! (Not convinced, but worth a shot!) Nope, same error.

Right, most who have seen this error report no problem on their dev machine with VS installed and get it on machines with just the runtime installed.  So, feck it, I installed VS 2008 on the server (clutching right!), I just though perhaps there was something VS installed that I was referencing somewhere...at the very least I would have debug tools installed, speed up the process and could rule it out.  Nope, same error.  Now I can't actually attach a debugger to the process can I, as the service hasn't won't start!

This is mental!  As far as I was concerned I had nowhere else to go.  By the way, somewhere in there I actually tried to run the service on a different x64 2003 server, but still the same error.  I got another service I have been working on, hacked it about so it would build and run (making sure I was referencing the same libraries as original project).  Same drill, wrapped it in an installer, spun it up on the server, started first time!!!  Right, nothing to do with the framework, clearly the issue is local to my project.

I created a new project and copied in any custom classes and basically replicated exactly what the problem service was doing, IT WORKED.  The only thing different, when I created the first project, I deleted the "Service1" that the project template creates.

If you have made it this far down the post in anticipation of the first cause and "concrete" solution for this error, I am sorry to disappoint, but all I have is it to create a new project and start again...VS must be doing/wanting something weird in the background.  After wasting a hours on this I don't have the inclination of patience to look further/deeper.

Perhaps someone has had similar experiences with the error and could enlighten the rest of us?

Gravatar Sorry, I can't offer any enlightenment, but I did get a similar error with a Windows service that had been running without problems for over 7 months:

EventType clr20r3 ... P9 system.exception

I couldn't find any reason for the error, and when the service ran today, it worked fine, and when I manually ran the service, it worked fine again. I'm keeping an eye on it, and have some more logging set up now to try to catch it if it happens again.

BTW, you probably already know this (since you said it just threw you a little), but .NET 3.5 and 3.0 both use the 2.0 CLR with add-on classes, etc. So unfortunately everything seems to get reported as 2.0.

Gravatar Your not alone, we've recently encountered the same issue. I suspect it was a recent patch, but I'm still looking.

Further debug info for analysis: our error is thrown from pre-existing console apps (vb.net 2.0) that run every few hours on a schedule. The apps, of course, have not changed in quite some time which makes me think it was a patch (about the only thing that happens on this machine). The other quirk is that it is not every time -- maybe once a day or two. Most of the time, the apps run just fine.

If I find a solution, I'll try to remember to post it here for you.

if (opt != null && opt.ToLower() == "/install")
{
TransactedInstaller ti = new TransactedInstaller();
ProjectInstaller pi = new ProjectInstaller();


ti.Installers.Add(pi);

string path = string.Format("/assemblypath={0}",
Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location);
string[] cmdline = { path };
InstallContext ctx = new InstallContext("", cmdline);

ti.Context = ctx;

try
{
ServiceController mService = new ServiceController("ucServices");
if (mService.DisplayName != string.Empty)
{
if (mService.CanStop)
{
mService.Stop();
mService.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped);
}
ti.Uninstall(null);
}
}
catch (System.Exception)
{
}

ti.Install(new Hashtable());

}
else if (opt != null && opt.ToLower() == "/uninstall")
{
TransactedInstaller ti = new TransactedInstaller();
ProjectInstaller mi = new ProjectInstaller();
ti.Installers.Add(mi);
string path = string.Format("/assemblypath={0}",
Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location);
string[] cmdline = { path };
InstallContext ctx = new InstallContext("", cmdline);
ti.Context = ctx;
ti.Uninstall(null);
}

the projectinstaller contains the serviceprocessinstaller and serviceinstaller object

Gravatar Hi guys,
for what it's worth, I had this same problem today and after wrapping the Main() method with try-catch block with a messageBox to show the exception.ToString() (a suggestion I saw here... thanks) I found that the problem was when trying to use Assembly.GetTypes() and I had a file missing where one of the types declared in the Assembly inherited from.
(i.e. class A (declared in my assembly) inherits from Class B. Class B is in an assembly that is missing in the folder or GAC)
I found this by running this code on a machine that HAD VS2005 installed on to see what types I was trying to get. then, traced each type and all it's base classes to see that all required assemblies could be found. Again, there was one missing.
Hope this helps someone...
Lior.

Gravatar I ran into a similar problem. My string contained system.typeinitialization instead of system.argumentexception, but I believe that both have the same root cause.

What I found is that a static class inside of my service threw an exception in its constructor (kinda weird if you ask me, but I did not designed the service, I just support it). Check your classes, if they are failing when being initialized, you'll lose the specific exception and will get a generic one like the one you comment.

Hope this helps

Without going into detail, debugging this error using Visual Studio 2008 tells me that there is an unhandled exception in module system.drawing.dll, being an argument exception "Font Arial Narrow does not support style 'Bold'". Im am going to post this info at the REX support forum. If Reed at REX can resolve this error, then I'll post the fix here also.

Gravatar Error Resolved!!!!

After some research, I found out that the culprit was the retooled "Arial Narrow" font that was installed with MS Office 2007. There is a hotfix available from Microsoft (KB Article 956514). I requested, downloaded and installed the hotfix, then restarted the computer. I now have "Arial Narrow" supporting the Bold style, and Real Environment Extreme launches without error!

This may not help solve your problem, SS, since it sounds like we have two different errors (argument exception vs. format exception. I hope you find a quick resolution to your error.

Gravatar We had this problem with the system.configuration.dll. Our issue turned out to be that the program was trying to read in a file that had a .config extension on it but was not really a config file (it was just an xml data file with some settings in it).

Prior to the patch, the program would only read this file when it was told to. After it was patched, it tried to read it when the program was run. The program threw an unhandled exception because the xml file was not a valid config file. We changed the name of the file and the program to look for the file with the new name and the problem was solved!

Hope this helps!

sometimes when the service crashes. previously it was giving System.Net.Sockets.SocketException it was because i was trying to close the socket connection now the second error is not coming but the first one i am getting in my production lab but not on my system.
Can you please help me out by giving some clue on this error.
Previously at few places i have not catched systemException but now i have added it and given release but i am not sure it will work. Do i have to do something else along with this?
Any kind of help is appreciated.

Gravatar I had this problem also with a 3.5 service. Funny thing is that it would work on XP no problem for testing, but after installing on 2003 Server, it would bomb at startup with the same error (note "P4 system" as original post mentions):
EventType clr20r3, P1 <servicenamehere>, P2 1.0.0.0, P3 49d3d691, P4 system, P5 2.0.0.0, P6 4889de7a, P7 36dc, P8 7f, P9 system.argumentexception, P10 NIL.

Turns out (at least in my case) that my installer did not set the proper credentials (see service Log On tab) and that was the whole issue. Manually reset to a proper account & passwd and all is happy now.
Hope this helps... at least its one more thing to look at :)

Gravatar Thanks for all the ideas it led me to the solution in my case although it was completely different and I feel kind of silly now. Maybe it will help to someone out there.

So I have WCF service that I’m running in console mode while consuming it in my ASP.NET application. I had quite a few problems with it so I was doing all kinds of stuff debugging it. One of the things I also did is actually installed the service as “windows service” about 2 weeks ago to confirm some of my tests. Well over the weekend if finally rebooted my virtual machine after 2 weeks and when I got in this morning I couldn’t start the service in the console mode anymore getting the “EventType clr20r3” error in event viewer.

Some of you have probably figured out my problem by now but it took me an hour :o).

I already had my service running as it was set to Automatic start and was started during reboot, and then when I tried to start it up in console mode it would crash. So not sure if anyone else is as silly as I am but double check that your service is not already running before you try and start it up again.

Good luck.

Gravatar I've been having this on a vb.net 2008 winform app I wrote when deploying to x86 XP machines.

The .net 2.0 error was throwing me too. Couldn't track this down. Tried compiling on x86 vs x64 machines (it was developed on an x64 machine), everything error trapped even msgboxes scattered about to trap the exact line. It wouldn't even make the first msgbox which was placed at the head of the main form's resize routine, the first custom bit of code to run.

I fiddled with pretty much every setting in the project, finally it was in the debug section, setting "Enable unmanaged code debugging" to true that fixed the problem.

I still have no idea what this issue was, there are no errors being thrown now that I have that set and it all works perfectly well.....

Another excellent 'undocumented feature' from Microsoft.

Gravatar I get this error message when viewing the error details when trying to run Catalyst Control Center. Here's the message I get: Catalyst Control Center: Host application has stopped working. Then I get the option to search online for a solution (nothing happens) or to just close the program. Here are the error details:

Gravatar Based on what I read here it seemed that I was missing some file. I reopened my project and set all my references to 'copy local' so everything I need would be included in the project bin directory after I recompiled. Everything worked when I included the additional files

Gravatar I ran into this problem just recently when I was reworking an old project using the .net 2.0 framework in a .net 4.0 environment. I kept getting the "1053: timely fashion" error with starting my service, along with the "clr20r3 argumentexception" error in the event log.

With the assistance of a coworker, we determined that the issue was caused by Visual Studio's conversion of the old 2.0 project to the new framework. In our service's designer.cs file, we were using a fileSystemWatcher call, which was referencing the incorrect file path.

When run on my dev box, the incorrect path was overridden as intended and the service ran fine. When we tried loading the service in the native .net 2.0 environment, it crashed. It only worked after changing the file path of fileSystemWatcher.

Gravatar For me it was an unhandled exception. I was given a hint in "Problem Signature 09:", an IO error.

A few more try/catch blocks and voila, I found the culprit. Another process (IIS page that monitors the log file for errors) had locked the log file I was trying to write too.

Check your "Problem Signature 09:" for a hint, and look through your code for any unhandled exceptions.

Gravatar Another clr20r3 problem with the following
Problem Signature 09: System.InvalidOperationException

The VB2008 form and program did run without problems at first on Vista and Win7 computers, but after a few slight changes did run on Vista but crashed on Win7.

By deleting the last changes one by one, the cause was found: VB's powerpacks with the LineShape control. That works fine with Vista, but crashes with Win7, despite adding the import of the powerpacks...

Gravatar In our case, the error reported was
EventType clr20r3, P1 printing.exe, P2 1.0.0.0, P3 4bd85c83, P4 system.configuration, P5 2.0.0.0, P6 471ebf00, P7 1a6, P8 136, P9 ioibmurhynrxkw0zxkyrvfn0boyyufow, P10 NIL.

It was a executable, so I open the command prompt (Start->Run->cmd) and executed the .exe as a file. The unhandled exception details popped up on the prompt indicating an invalid character in the .config file. The .config file had recently been modified and the editor used (Wordpad) had inserted an invalid character (not visible though). I re-edited the file in another editor overwriting the culprit line with the same characters and that fixed the issue. Thanks to everyone here.
