I was on version 220.127.116.113 and I just tried to install the latest version Octopus.18.104.22.1686. It “installs” fine through the MSI installer but when the Octopus Deployment Manager opens and I click “Start” for the service I get a very small error window and the service won’t start.
I uninstalled 1066. I was able to get 1020 to install and startup the service and everything appears to be working fine on the lastest version.
This is the error message
A fatal exception occurred
