After a recent CRM Solution deployment to our Dynamics CRM 365 environment users started encountering the below plugin error when updating a Contacts entity record.
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
And so it begins …
The day had only just begun … I got into the office … I grabbed a coffee … sat down at my desk.
I tried connecting to one of my Azure dev VM’s but for some reason I couldn’t RDP to it. I waited a bit of time and then tried again, but still no luck.
My Azure AutomationAccount was configured to automatically start and shutdown my VM’s each working day.
I checked the logs for my AutomationAccount and found the message
“The Server encountered an internal error. Please retry the request.”.

In this post I'll explain what's happening here and how you can fix this.
When trying to locally debug a newly created solution within
Visual Studio 2015 I encountered the below error when locally launching the application using IIS Express
A process with the ID of
<id> is not running
Seeing no errors logged in the Visual Studio Output window, I checked the
Windows Event Viewer and found the following error:
The Module DLL C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\aspnetcore.dll failed to load. The data is the error.
The error was a bit confusing because it alluded to ASP.NET Core even though I wasn't using this in my project.

Google Chromecast (2nd generation) I was unable to successfully complete the setup process.
My Chromecast could not be detected on the network by my devices even though it had successfully connected to my wireless network and I could cast to it through the Youtube Android app.

I came across the following error while trying to run the
program. Sysinternals Process Explorer
Unable to extract 64-bit image. Run Process Explorer from a writeable directory. What's Going On?
Process Explorer extracts and executes the appropriate x86 or x64 binary for the platform you’re on, and therefore requires elevated privileges (i.e. “Administrative rights”).
This can sometimes be a headache if you’re operating in an environment where you have “limited” access rights.
