Error Message:

Configuration Parser Error - Error Parsing C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config\Machine.Config

Parser Returned Error Code 0x80070005

Fix:

The issue is permissions access to the machine.config file in the .Net folder. Go to the machine.config file and apply "full control" permissions for everyone and/or the domain admin account that the software runs under.
