In my case, when I deployed my application after updating the .NET framework version, I forgot to deploy the config file. So the old config file was being used that pointed to the wrong runtime. Specifically this part:

<startup><supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.5"/></startup>

In my case the combination of EventLog and Linq caused this error on some Windows 10 systems:

KERNELBASE.dll, Version: 10.0.17134.319, Timestamp: 0x5ea0e53d
Exception code: 0xc000041d
Error offset: 0x001117d2
ID of erronous process: 0x175c
Path to erronous modul: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll

Using Linq to query the whole event log records for just the most recent last one of a specific InstanceId (formerly EventId Z Id) is very unefficient anyway, I changed the code to use a EventLogQuery instead:

string queryString = "*[System[Provider[@Name='MyApp'] and (EventID=1 or EventID=2)]]";
EventLogQuery eventsQuery = new EventLogQuery("Application", PathType.LogName, queryString);
eventsQuery.ReverseDirection = true;
eventsQuery.TolerateQueryErrors = true;

    EventLogReader logReader = new EventLogReader(eventsQuery);
    EventRecord lastLogEntry = logReader.ReadEvent();

catch (EventLogNotFoundException)
    Console.WriteLine("Error while reading the event logs");

In my case there was a problem in AsseblyInfo.cs I had to delete Neutral language line.
