  • Hi,
           This might be an installation issue. Can you please try to un-install Blend and Silverlight SDK and try installing it again and see if that solves your problem. Also, if possible please send us the stack trace for the crash. You can get the stack trace by running Blend from command prompt with /exceptionlog flag. Send this log at navits@microsoft.com and we will take a look at this.

  • Hi!!

    thanks for your help!

    I have been unistall the expression studio... but my wpf application are still having problem...

    And know that i'm trying to install the expression studio again, the installer crashes at the begining...

    The installer just say: Preparing installer, or begining, something like that with the nice yellow background... but after some seconds the installer crashes and stop responding....

    I can't have the log file, because of I have been unistalled the Blend...

    I don´t know what to do.... I'm using Windows 7 RC1 on the desktop and laptop computers.... on my laptop i'm not having any problem with expression studio, but on my desktop is the problem....

    The desktop computer's hardware is ok... The desktop pc have dual boot with windows xp, and I don't have problem with the wpf app there, just that I don't want to install exdpression on it because of that windows xp installetion is only used for other apps....

    Thanks agin for your help...

    Have a happy day!

  • Wilmer,
    Can you send a screen shot of the failure to exfordis@microsoft.com

    Also can you run setup from the command line with -l*V parameter: setup.exe -l*V

    This will turn on verbose logging for setup.  The log will be located in your %temp% directory.

    CD %TEMP%
    Dir xsetup_*.log

    Can you email the most recent file to the above email address.

    Are you installing on a x64 or x86 machine?

    Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

    With regards
