"The type initializer for 'Act.Shared.WordCrushSpellChecker' threw an exception."

In case anyone else runs into this one...

 

Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362

Act! Version 22.0.205.0, Update 4 English (United States)
C:\Users\Public\Documents\ACT\ACT Data\Databases\ACT2020Demo.pad

 

Contacts View, click Global Icon Bar "Note" icon for New Note, "The type initializer for 'Act.Shared.WordCrushSpellChecker' threw an exception." appears*.

 

I found its a .NET issue:

1) KB: "Error: "The type initializer for 'System.Windows.Media.FontFamily' threw an exception" when opening Act!"

      https://help.act.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024251654

      Running the "Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool is available" solved the issue, even though the log said it didn't work.

2) Google: "SOLVED the type initializer for module threw an exception ..."
