Why does Blend sometimes add a StartUpUri to my app.xaml? I don't want it to! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm using Blend 4 on Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, and have noticed that every now and then, Blend will add a StartUpUri to my app.xaml file. It doesn't ask me, it just does it.

    The file it chooses for the value seems to be fairly random, and is usually one that I don't have open.

    Anyone know why it does this, and how to stop it? I don't have a StartUpUri set in app.xaml as the initial window is set in code.

    Thanks

  • Yes, but it seems like either no-one else has the problem, or no-one from MS cares enough to answer.

    The forums are for peer-to-peer interaction and the owning group within Microsoft which owns this forurm (The blend group in this case) can choose whether to participate in the forums or not. Some groups are more active than others....

    To get Micorosoft's attention on any issue, one should file a connect issue and that is where you will get a response. Post your issue in the Expression Studio section of connect. Let us know if you post one and supply the link.
