Whenever I click on the "save" button in CardSpace, to save a new or edited card I get this message:
Windows CardSpace has encountered an error and is shutting down
and CardSpace shuts down. Nothing at all is logged to the Event Viewer. This happens with the latest (December 12 2006) .NET 3.0 running on XP. Uninstalling and reinstalling .NET has no effect. Deleting all the cards has no effect. Deleting the Application Data\Microsoft\CardSpace folder has no effect.
However, despite this symptom, the card I was editing does get saved. But when I try to use any card, CardSpace crashes in exactly the same way -- immediately after CardSpace fetches the security policy from the STS, and before any attempt is made to ask the STS for the token. This crash is more nasty, leaving me in the CardSpace desktop with a blank screen. I have to use CTRL-ALT-DEL and invoke the task manager to get the normal desktop to reappear. Plus of course my login fails because CardSpace didn't fetch any token from the STS.
This has only started happening since I upgraded to the December 12 .NET. Before this, I was using the release candidate and everything was fine. Can someone help please? I am dead in the water here.
