comment When to grant admin rights
Other than some help with the inital development image, IT does NOT generally support these VMs. If you bork it, you grab a fresh copy. This makes it easy to combine with the scorched earth policy below. If/when they hose their desktop OS, it doesn't have an impact on their (virtual) development environment.

I would call that a good, universal list. Not *nix-centric at all.

comment What do you call the main component of a computer system?
This is the best option because even the least technical user can (usually) grasp the concept of "box" versus "screen". Most of the other terms will have them poking their monitor in confusion.

Fortunately this is the first app I've moved to this server, though I'll be sure to keep an eye on the app pools for the other two when I add them.

I did NOT realize the component itself had to be restarted! Thanks for that. There were instructions in the documentation for registering the DLLs, so I believe that's covered.

Ruled out the specific file, awesome. Have any alternative SD cards or drives you can try?

The original server had 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 installed, though I'd thought 2.0 would encompass them all? I'll take a snapshot and install the other 2 to see if it helps.

Yes? ;) I honestly don't know, but if I can check anything to get you that information, I'm happy to do so. I love a puzzle, but I'm going into this one without a ton of prior knowledge to go on.

Can this happen to any, or is it one specific application that has the problem?
