Running a WPF windows app from VS 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am on a 64 bit XP, sp2 machine.  I created my first WPF (for Windows) app with nothing in it (no controls).  I simply gave a background color to the form.  I then compiled errors, then ran it (F5); the screen started flashing (blank to garbage...again and again).  I had to power the computer off to get out of this cycle.  This happens consistently.  I can't get a WPF app to run in VS 2008.  If I run the exe itself, the screen goes blank for a second then the exe runs ok.  When I switch back to the VS 2008 IDE, the screen goes blank again for about a second then we are back to normal.  I need to be able to test my development without having to compile and then run from outside of the IDE.  Please help.
