Error: TimeOutSeconds cannot exceed 180 - when opening a batch after setting the DefaultClientAppInfoTimeoutSeconds longer than 180 second in the Web.config

This error will be encountered when opening any batch after adding a web.config setting to extend the web shell timeout value so that data lists have more time to process before timing out.
Download and install the latest patch which contains all fixes from previous patches. If you are running an older version, download and install the latest version and then the patch.

Steps to Duplicate

1. In any 4.0 installation, Access the bbappfx\vroot folder and edit the web.config file
2. In the <appSettings> section add the key 
 
<add key="WebShell.DefaultClientAppInfoTimeoutSeconds" value="240" />
 
3. Restart IIS or otherwise Recycle the application pool.  I used the RestartWebApp option in the BBappFXConfig.exe
4. Log into CRM
5. Go to Revenue Batch Entry
6. Open any batch
Error: TimeOutSeconds cannot exceed 180.
