    'The type initializer for 'Touchpaper.Knowledge.Administration.AdministrationServer' threw an exception'

    Answer

    This was found to be an issue with running on a 64 bit platform.  This issue does not occur on 32 bit platforms.

     

    The machine needed the 64 bit version of Visual J# installed (the standard one needed to be uninstalled first, but it will tell you this).  Check that the 64 bit version of .Net Framework is already installed.  Also after taking a backup

     

    1.     Stop Knowledge Builder Service.
