Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.


  • I'm making a Windows Store app and get this all the time while troubleshooting my XAML. It always highlights a line in App.g.i.cs:

    if (global::System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached) global::System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Break();

    This is so infuriating! I would love to address whatever problems there are in my code, except I'm consistently given zero information! It highlights a line of code that I didn't write with an exception containing nothing helpful.

    Anyway, I was directed here from a link on StackOverflow with instruction to leave feedback about this. With the intention of being perfectly explicit, my feedback would be to describe these exceptions as completely useless.
