problem after VS 2012 update RRS feed

  • General discussion



    I've just download an update to Visual Studio 2012.

    After that I'm getting a problem with XAML pages that are located in class library (this problem doesn't occure in V2 2012 without update).

    Every time I'm trying to lauch this kind of page I'm getting "XAML parsing failed.".

    This problem is not connected with dots in library name (there was a hotfix for this problem).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • We would love to take a look, but will need a repro project.

    Could you please get in touch with me directly at unnir at Microsoft dot com with the project repro so we can investigate?

  • I too am having the same problem after the VS update. Unfortunately, my application is rather too large and proprietary to be uploaded as an example for Microsoft to play with :(.
    (P.S. I do not have dots/periods in my assembly names (that triggered a similar bug in some previous version of VS2012).

  • There is a workaround for this problem. Just try to set assembly name the same as default namespace. That should work. If not please contact me direclty on email w.zubik at jojomobile dot pl.
