webinspect can not be launched.

I met an issue:

double click the webinspect icon, it can not be launched.

also tried run as administrator.

check windows event viewer, get below message:

  • I'd recommend a repair or an uninstall and re-install (be sure to install by right-clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator".

    If that doesn't work - take a look at your .NET installation and make sure it's compatible with the version of WebInspect you're running.  A re-install of .NET may also be a good idea if the version looks compatible.
