Interesting problem...

I've never heard of Maintenance mod? Anyone else?

- Is Maintenance Mod some 3rd party app that you've installed?
- Is Maintenance Mod listed in 'Add or Remove Programs'?

I'm assuming that Universe Sandbox isn't working because you don't have .NET installed.
- What happens if you don't click repair after installing .NET? Does Universe Sandbox work then?
- If you run the 'ClickOnce' installer it will automatically download and install the correct version of .NET. That might also be worth trying.

Thanks for your interest. Let me know if any of that works for you.

It's the 1st download link: "Install Universe Sandbox - Using Microsoft's ClickOnce Installer"

http://universesandbox.com/download/

Download and run the file: setup.exe

:)

No problem. Did that fix the problem for you?

Are you able to run Universe Sandbox now?

Can you try to run Universe Sandbox again?

When you get the error report window... please type in your email address and a brief comment like ".net problem" so that I know it's you.

The error reports are extremely valuable and really help me figure out what's going on.

Thanks.

Thanks for the screenshot.

To fix this error:
dfsvc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

1 - Open up this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
(just copy and paste this into an explorer window's address bar and Windows will change %userprofile% to the folder of the current user)

2 - Then delete this file:
UsrClass.dat
(you may have to have administrative privileges to do this - let me know if you can't delete the file)

3 - Restart your computer.

4 - Try running Universe Sandbox again.

And let me know if that worked.
