C# Windows app updating JSON file error.

I am writing a application that reads and updates a JSON file.
I can read it OK but when I try to updaed it, I get the following error:
Severity      Code      Description      Project      File      Line      Suppression State
Error      CS0656      Missing compiler required member 'Microsoft.CSharp.RuntimeBinder.CSharpArgumentInfo.Create'

The code I am using to update is:

 public bool SetSystemOptions(int MinRxLThreshold, ref string messag)
            SysSettings SysSetting;
            bool Success = true;
            string json = File.ReadAllText("settings.json");
            dynamic jsonObj = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(json);
            jsonObj[0]["Password"] = "new password";
            string output = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.SerializeObject(jsonObj, Newtonsoft.Json.Formatting.Indented);
            File.WriteAllText("settings.json", output);

            return Success;

Please post a sample json file that the code is using. Thanks.

    "min_scans": 5,
    "password": 5,
    "user": 40,
    "threshold_meters": 50,
    "min": 1000,
    "max": 100,
    "invalidthreshold": 120,
    "invalid_drop": false,
    "filter_params": false

Try changing the following line in your code from this
 jsonObj[0]["Password"] = "new password";

Open in new window

to this
 jsonObj["Password"] = "new password";

Open in new window

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Tried that- didn't help. Any other ideas?

In the solution I posted I used the Jason structure you posted and got the result. So what did it returned In your project and what where you expecting.
