I upgraded 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7 servers with new releases from today.

Installation and configuration steps went fine but when trying to complete/terminate the Installer wizard by clicking Finsih" this error pops up.

I closed the dialog/wizard from the "x" in upper right corner and everything is fine. So this is more a cosmetical problem than a functional problem. 

How to repeat:
Se above.

I will upload a screenshot of the error diaalog

Suggested fix:
No clue.

Well .. I think the screenshot, I posted, documents that it happened here. 

And I am not able to provide more feedback unless you can point me to logs or similar that may have information of the underlying reason for this. 

The error message is a generic message issued by the .NET runtime I think. I updated the system from from "Windows update" 2 days ago with the Cumulative Update KB3194798. So if this or an older update also updates the .NET runtime and you have not updated this could possibly explain why I get the error and you don't.

Anyway it is not a big deal.
