STAThread Exception

P: n/a
Hi

I have developed a smart client application. When i try to
execute it. It displays the first form which is the login
screen. On giving the corrent login id and password, the
main form opens. It has 2 menus. On clicking the submenu,
it throws an STAThread exception. The error details are
given below. I have included

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.ApartmentSta te =
System.Threading.ApartmentState.STA;

above the static void Main(). Also my main has [STAThread]
above it.

Any idea as what must be the issue. Please help.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file
for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.
