WPF + Flow documents in windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

              I'm using flowdocuments as templates in my wpf application to generate reports. When deployed on windows 7/vista, i am able to generate as many reports as possible..however on windows xp, the application crashes the second time I try to generate a report.(The report contains a minimum of 4 pages). The exception that i get on windows Xp is System.IO.FileNotFoundException ..... which does not add up ....as it is the same application that is deployed on a windows 7 and a vista machine.....again, the application would not have been able to generate the report the first time if the file was not present.......

    Anyone who has experienced a similar issue with flow documents on windows xp .....and has found a solution ..please do get back to me...

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, Flow Document is supported by Windows XP not as well as Windows Vista and Windows 7. I didn’t encounter this issue in my daily work. Here is my suggestion/idea for this issue.

    1. Install the latest hotfixes for Windows XP OS and .NET Framework.

    2. If the .NET 4.0 is installed in Windows XP, I suggest setting the application’s target framework as 4.0.

    If the above reply cannot help you. I suggest providing a simplified sample for us to reproduce this issue.

    If I misunderstood or my points are incorrect, please feel free to let me know.

    Have a nice time!
