Type initializer threw exception

I got the following error message when I had set a static string value to ""
or " ";

"The type initializer for "theSetting s" threw an exception."
"The path is not of a legal form."

The variable is set as:

private static string logFilePath;

In a static function.

If I set logFilePath to "a", I have no problem.

What would cause this problem?

Thanks,

Tom

That entirely depends on what the type initializer for
"theSetting s" (why the awful type name btw?) does.

I'm sure there's more to it than just a variable...

HI,
Without more details we cannot help you. In my experience you see this kind
of exception when a constructor throw an unhandle exception. Most of the
time the InnerException will contain the "real" exception.
