I received an error report regarding a WPF app that wouldn't start up in a Windows Server 2008 Service pack 2 server (the application is an administration tool we're distributing to our customers). Since this application has a lot of external references, I tried to simplify the problem by creating a simple WPF application using Visual Studio 2013: a plain white window with "hello world" showing and nothing more. I tried to make it run in the production server, with no luck: it always crashes immediately.
Here's what I have:
configSectionssection on top, no additional references besides log4net,
supportedRuntimetag set according to the target framework version
DispatcherUnhandledExceptionand in the
Here are the error details:

Just in case someone else stumbles on the same problem, looks like the KB4457921 update from Microsoft somehow solves the issue. If an update is not possible, consider porting the code back to .net framework v. 3.5.
