After installing the stand alone MFA MSI on a fresh VM without any other MFA pre-requisites (Java/Android SDKs, .net, etc) causes visual studio to throw a System.ArgumentNullException on start.
Adding an error message informing the user that they are missing certain pre-requisites would be a useful enhancement, although I would assume this issue won't be encountered frequently.
The user is informed of the lack of installed pre-requisites (.net framework, java and android SDKs, etc)
Series of system error messages that don't explicitly point out the lack of pre-requisites.
(System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.
MFA 4.2.4 and 4.2.5
Win8x32 and Win8x64
Going to go ahead and close this bug out, the universal installer we ship checks for and installs all required prerequisites.
