problem in loading designer in visual studio 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Microsoft visual studio ultimate 2012 RC.

    the xaml and cs page are working and the apps too are running but its not showing the designer along with the xaml page.

    it says that an unhandled exception has occured, asks to reload designer and gives error

    error details:

    System.Exception

  • What OS version are you using? You should probably move to VS 2012 RTM instead of RC.
