HwndSource object is not created RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm using interoperability, in order to host WPF controls inside MFC. (Visual studio 2012, 32bit).

    After following the tutorial given by: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms744829.aspx, I downloaded the example from MSDN: Win32HostingWPFPage project.

    My problem is simply: On my first computer, it works perfectly, but in my second computer it doesn't work (no wpf control are created)

    In the second computer, with the debugger, i noticed that "HwndSource" failed to be created....

    I got this exception: System.TypeInitializationException .... PresentationCore.dll (for me it is because the compiler doesn't succeed to interpret c++/cli)

    Thanks very much by advance to help me, because since a couple of week, i didn't succeed to solve this problem!

    Best regards,

  • Hello,

    Whereas Microsoft team is sleeping, i found the solution with this post:


    It was because of BUG of MICROSOFT:

    A file in "C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\.NETFramework,Version=v4.0.AssemblyAttributes.cpp" is badly filled. Please to see the url above.
