    Hello IR123,

    The tutorial below is for Windows 7, but also applies to Windows 8. It should be able to help you to do so.

    ************** 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.

    I'm afraid that it appears that it doesn't work in Windows 8.

    Is only the program giving you this error, or something else?
