designer unhandled exception - VS2012 Ultimate - Win8 - even for new blank app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I just installed VS 2012 Ultimate and I create new Blank Windows Store App (C#) and I want to design the app but I always get designer unhandled exception. I tried uninstall VS2012 and reinstall but it does not help. I also tried Blend / VS Express 2012 both does not work. Well, at least one thing work, when I create an Windows Form application... but I want to use WPF...

    An unhandled exception has occurred.

  • Do you want to create a WPF app or a Windows Store app?

    Do you get this app without any changes from the template? Are you able to build and run the app?

  • Did you ever install any Preview versions of the Windows Phone 8 SDKs?
