LP7 Upgrade: Could not obtain startup pointer
I upgraded my LinqPad to 7.5.14 (x64) today, but I'm having a lot of issues with it. After some experimenting, I have these reproducable steps:
- Run LINQPad7Setup.exe to install 7.5.14 (x64).
- After finishing the install, allow it to launch LinqPad.
- Run a script that uses a library that references System.Data.SqlClient. This script ran yesterday just fine, but today it does not. It gives the error: "Could not load file or assembly 'System.Data.SqlClient, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. The system cannot find the...".
- Exit LinqPad.
- Click the LinqPad icon in the system tray. LinqPad doesn't launch, and instead gives you a dialog that says: "Could not obtain startup pointer (-21470248941).".
In order to run LinqPad again, I have to install it again.
