Attempting to run ECS 5.2.5 on a Windows 10 PC results in a machine.config error message.

Installing ECS 5.2.5 on a Windows 10 PC resulted in an error message indicating that there was a problem with the machine.config file. Replacing the machine.config file corrects the problem. Complete the following steps.

Step 1:  Locate the file in the following directory: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG

Step 2:  Rename file machine.config to machine.config.old.

Step 3:  Copy file machine.config.default and rename to machine.config.
