I do not know what could be causing this error, but if I do a Google search for "CorLaunchApplication ArgumentException" I find people saying that you might need to "clear your ClickOnce cache folder".

Here is a page which has some ideas about how to clear the ClickOnce cache folder:

Also, here is an old page that we wrote to help people when their Skyline installation is really not working:
