The EMC is failing to work.  I have tried opening it directly and through MMC.  I get the following message when I try to load it.

 at System.RuntimeTypeHandle.CreateInstance(RuntimeType type, Boolean publicOnly, Boolean noCheck, Boolean& canBeCached, RuntimeMethodHandle& ctor, Boolean& bNeedSecurityCheck)

Not that I could find.  Should I be looking for something specific (source or Task Category)

Commented:
The error is to basic. It could be a lot of things.
Did you recently install updates? Or did you install some 3rd party app?

Author

Commented:
No.  Is there a way to reinstall it?

Commented:
Do you receive an error when you start EMS (shell) from a command prompt by running the cmdlet C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\bin\exshell.psc1 ?

Author

Commented:
runs fine.
Commented:
Can you start the EMC from a different domain member / client without error?

Author

Yes I can.  That works perfectly.
