I know this is old, but thought I'd post Luke's advice as an answer since it solved my problem.

As Luke mentioned in a comment above, the issue for me was an unhandled exception that was happening on startup. Once I wrapped the startup code in a try catch, I found the problem which was totally a bug in my app, nothing to do with kernalbase.dll or any other external dependency or reference.
