Installation troubles

Oct 9, 2008 at 10:35 PM
This is a cool project and I was excited to try it. I downloaded and followed the instructions but it is not working for me.

The WPF app fails when launched. The error:

Description:

Stopped working

Problem signature:

Problem Event Name: CLR20r3

Problem Signature 01: colorful.exe

Problem Signature 02: 1.0.0.0

Problem Signature 03: 48e17ffb

Problem Signature 04: PresentationFramework

Problem Signature 05: 3.0.0.0

Problem Signature 06: 470bc696

Problem Signature 08: e1

Problem Signature 09: System.Windows.Markup.XamlParse

OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.4

Locale ID: 1033


Also, the Colorful palette does not appear in Design 2. In fact, sometimes Design 2 quits on launch wit hthis error:

Blend 2.5 Preview Release is hanging on launch at the Blend splash screen.

Certainly this is a problem with my installation or something. I think I am up to date with the Expression 2 apps and Silverlight 2 beta 2. I've installed all of the Windows Updates too.

Ideas?

Thanks,
Bruce

Hi Bruce,

I'm quite sure the problem is that you don't have .NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 installed. Microsoft introduced some enhancements to WPF in .NET 3.5 SP1 that the Colorful Expression application take advantage off. For instance the support for using String.Format inside Binding Expressions. I actually took on this dependency by accident, and is considering rewriting the code to use my own String.Format ValueConverter instead. It's a fairly simple workaround and will remove the dependency for .NET 3.5 SP1 to be installed.

However, if you want to run the current release simply download .NET 3.5 SP1 from Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=ab99342f-5d1a-413d-8319-81da479ab0d7&displaylang=en).

Let me know if you still have issues.
