    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (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 computer

    It looks like from the error you posted that you are running a 32bit operating system. There is a known issue regarding windows 32 bit operating systems. What operating system are you running?

    32 bit operating system, x 64- based processor

    32-bit systems are not supported for the initial push - you will have to arm yourself with patience as bugs are getting fixed.

    i am encountering the same message. I have downloaded the client from the poxnora main site (https://www.poxnora.com/download.do)
    Does this mean I wont be able to play this game until a fix is made?

    Hello, I run into same problem. Because its known issue, is there known workaround ? Or known solution ?
    This is couple of months ago reported, there should be something for 32 bit win users, right ?
    (something else than instal 64 bit OS on your device)
