“Object reference not set to an instance of an object” – What does that mean?

Issue: NodeXL Crashes and displays “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”

A common cause for this issue is the location of the NodeXL Pro License key.
Delete the current NodeXL Pro license key.
Find the email that was sent with the initial NodeXL Pro license key attached.
Copy the NodeXL Pro License Key to the local file system. A good place is a folder created on the desktop called “NodeXL Pro”.
Restart NodeXL Pro. It will ask for the location of the NodeXL Pro License Key. Once that is provided, it should work properly.
