CLR20r3 error when booting MediaPortal (1 Viewer)

Out of nowhere I wasn't able to properly boot MediaPortal anymore. I always get the CLR20r3 error. I did a fresh install of .NET Framework and also of MediaPortal, but the problem remains the same. When I boot mediaportal with administrator rights, it starts and works fine. I'm using Vista x64.

Error message:

My bad. I attached the log files to the start post and filled in my system specs.

CLR20r3 error when booting MediaPortal : Solved

I got a similar error (though I didn't look at your logs). Basically, it turned out my MediaPortal.exe.config (as hinted at by the System.Configuration phrase in the error message) was a bunch of NUL bytes (as seen in a text editor). I grabbed the .config from another machine and it worked. I have no idea what caused this since I just installed a video driver or two, installed Vista SP2, and and rebooted the box via unplugging the power cable (out of frustration since my SVideo feed wasn't working to my big ole 27 Inch Sony tube.)

Here is the guts of the .config file (your results may vary).

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<requiredRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
<supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" />
<assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<probing privatePath="plugins/windows" />
<add key="version" value="" />
<add key="edtftp.log.level" value="ALL" />
