************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box. "

Re: error after install

Post by Simon (Webmaster) » Sun Oct 18, 2015 9:33 pm

Hi,

Someone else had this problem a few years back, the trouble is I can't remember the outcome or find any of the correspondence about it! I think it boils down to the font 'Arial' either missing entirely, or the 'regular' style of the font missing or somehow not usable. You could check in control panel -> fonts, and see if you could reinstall the font.

A quick search for " Font 'Arial' does not support style 'Regular' " suggests this is a fairly common problem (not specific to Electronics Assistant) and brought up a couple of articles about the problem, including this from Dell: https://support.software.dell.com/lites ... r/kb/98319.

That's great, glad it's working. Hopefully this will be useful if anyone else has the same problem - I'll amend the title to make it easier to find.

Hi,

I think someone encountered this before, but can't recall what the solution was. What version of Windows are you running? Are you trying to update from a previous version or do a new installation? If you are able to post a screenshot of the error message this would be useful. Do you know if you defiantly have the Arial font on your computer?

If this is sn update it may be worth uninstalling the previous version first.
