  • Can you open a Connect issue and attach the project you're seeing the ICE in?

  • Hi,Marian, thanks for the reply.I tried again and again,including as recreate a new blank windows store xaml app, add some codes clean,rebuild...etc, finally, I found that, it's my virtual functions in a sealed ref class caused that error, and the inheritance hierarchy of my class is like this:

     public ref class Base : public Windows::UI::Xaml::DependencyObject
      virtual void Render();
     protected private:

     public ref class Derived sealed : public Base
      virtual void Render() override;
      virtual ~Derived();
      void iniSurface();

    the solution is created like this:

    Blank XAML APP1 project


           all generated is fine, then add the reference from WindowsRuntimeComponent1 project, and in App::OnLaunched call the derived class method.

    WindowsRuntimeComponent1 project


         include the base and derived class


    if I use the non-virtual method (ie. iniSurface())outside in the App::OnLaunched everything is ok, but when I use the Render() method then I will get ICE error.and now, I am not sure the inheritance hierarchy of my class is correct.

    I can upload my test project to you,but I don't know how , and what do you mean of opening a Connect issue ?
