Thanks for the report. I don't know what might be missing. I'll check with the app developers to see if they have an idea.We don't test the utility with any embedded versions of Windows and I am not sure that we will have a fix. But we will look into it and I'll let you know if I find out anything useful.
Were you running the previous version of the utility (18.104.22.168) successfully? Most of the underlying program is the same, so I can get you a copy of the old version if that will help.
If you haven't already tried it, you might want to uninstall the utility, reboot, and then do a fresh install.
I'm not sure why you're getting the crash, but since the error is in the .net error chain, you might try running the .net framework installer. The utility installer includes a call for .net version 4.5, but you could try installing it directly. I don't know if this will fix the issue or not, but I think it's worth a try. Let me know how it works for you. See the page at Installing the .NET Framework. Scroll down past the table and follow the direction and link for version 4.5.
