“Unable to initialize the native configuration support…” Error after Windows Update
After updating my machine to the latest Windows update (Windows v10.01.18362 as of when this blog was written) some of my previous Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM console applications were not working. During debugging, the errors occur when the services cannot establish connections to CRM. The following error is returned:
“Unable to initialize the native configuration support external to the web worker process”.
To resolve this issue, go to Windows Features in the Control Panel. Expand “.NET Framework 4.8 Advanced Services” > “WCF Services” and tick “HTTP Activation”.
This resolved all my issues with connecting to CRM post-Windows 10 update.
