The Orion Web Console does not launch and there are XML errors in the log

Updated March 13, 2017

Overview

If there is an extraneous file in your \Orion\Modules folder, such as a shortcut, the Orion Web Console does not launch, syslogs and traps restart constantly, and the log files have errors similar to the following:
