I just installed Advanced Steel 2012 and Advance Steel Management Tools 2012. I have also installed service packs 1 & 2 for AS2012. When I tried to convert the databases from AS2011 using the Advance Manager for 2012, I received an error message telling me "The type initializer for 'DotNetRoots.DatabaseAccess.AstorSettings' threw an exception.
After trying the bolt editor and anchor bolt editor, I also received similar error messages.
I have tried repairing both Advance Steel and the Advance Manager to no avail. Uninstalling both programs and reinstalling them did no good either.
I am using Windows XP Pro 64 bit with 8 MB ram. Advance Steel 2011 and Advance Manager 2011 work great. Any ideas out there?
