WPF Package Load Failure


Package Load Failure

Package 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Xaml' has failed tot load properly. . . yadda, yadda, yadda.

So now what? This package is somewhat important since I was hoping to do some WPF stuff this afternoon. Tried running without it and my XAML design view is gone.

I already tried "devenv /resetsettings" from the command prompt.


Best Solution

Try repairing the install.

  • Control Panel
  • Add Remove Programs
  • Select Visual Studio 2008 and choose "repair"

Did you recently install any updates to Visual Studio or any Add-Ins? If so can you please list them?
