  • We now have a patch you can install to work around the following issue: “The XAML designer in VS and Blend will crash when opened.”

    This is only intended to be used with the Windows version 10049, and Windows SDK version 10030.

    • Download the following patch to a temp folder
    • Unzip the files  into a TEMP folder.
    • Exit Visual Studio if you have it opened.
    • From an  administrative command prompt, run the batch file: XAMLUpdate10049.cmd.

    That should do it.  If you have any issues, please post questions to the Tools for Windows Store apps forum.
