A .NET application crashes after installing the Microsoft Server Application Virtualization client

A natively installed .NET application may crash after the Microsoft Server Application Virtualization (Server App-V) client agent is installed on a computer. 
This can occur if the application's .NET Configuration Settings File (.config) does not include the supportedRuntime element or the value specified for the element is not compatible with the version used by Server App-V.

To work around this issue, modify the application's .config file and add <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727" /> under the <startup> node and restart the application.

For more information on the supportedRuntime element and the .NET configuration file schema see the following:
