We have a vb.Net 2005 application with Crystal Reports R2 that had been working fine for a long time.  All of a sudden some of our users get the message that our application "has encountered a problem and needs to close.".  We've been chasing our tails trying to find coding issues, but given that it is working without error on other machines I'm thinking/hoping it is a machine specific issue.  

Any and all help is appreciated...

Can you check your application logs (if any) and Event viewer to find if there is any error logged?
Also make a note of the softwares that are installed /uninstalled recently that could affect your application.

Your event says that your application has encountered a System.NullReferenceException. It is trying to access an object which is null. Most probably some external object. Please add a conditional check after each object creation to make sure that the reference really has got an object. something like this so that you can catch the culprit. If you have any exception log please have a look at it to find if there is any stack trace logged after this exception

MyClass obj  = new MyClass();
if(obj == null)
   LogMessage("obj is null");

I found a solution doing research.  It's not pretty, but it worked. Modify the app.config with the following code that was suggested in another solution;

<runtime>
<legacyUnhandledExceptionPolicy enabled="1" />
</runtime>

This takes care of the problem.
