SL 2011 FP1 - Unhandled exception has occurred in your application

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

After installing FP1 the DB Maintenance screen displays the error:

Unhandled exception has occurred in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.  If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Value cannot be null.  Parameter name: path1.

The detail has a log for this error.

Please, could any body advise about this error?

I appreciate your help and time.

    The solution was: to reinstall FP1 but before be sure to delete all previous folders and manualy delete SQL Client 2008 R2.

    Thank you

    Hi Miriam,

    I just want to make sure - you are installing SL 2011 FP1 that was just released last Thursday?

    Also, what version of SQL Server are you using?  Can you send me the detailed version information from SQL Server?

    We used to see this error if you were trying to run SQL Server 2012 with SL 2011 SP1.  In that case, you needed a hot-fix.  But if you are using SL 2011 FP1 with SQL Server 2012, I wouldn't think you would get that error.  I want to confirm the installed versions of both of those products with you before I test for this issue.
