New theme-related exception when switching to VS2012 from VS2010

WPF Studio, Themes, and Shared Library for WPF Forum

Version: 12.1.56
Platform: .NET 4.0
Environment: Windows 7 (64-bit)

We recently upgrade to VS2012 and are now encountering a crash when our application starts that wasn't there with VS2010. It seems to be happening with the call to ThemesOfficeThemeCatalogRegistrar.Register(). Here is the stack trace:

Exception Info: System.TypeInitializationException Stack: at ActiproSoftware.Windows.Themes.ThemeManager.RegisterThemeCatalog(ActiproSoftware.Windows.Themes.ThemeCatalogBase) at ActiproSoftware.Windows.Themes.ThemeCatalogRegistrarBase'1[[System.__Canon, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]].Register() at MyApp.App..ctor() at MyApp.App.Main()


Any thoughts?

Hi Hamid,

It shouldn't make a difference whether they are run in one VS or the other.  We aren't aware of any issues with the themes, and I know we have a lot of users using VS 2012.  It almost sounds like you have a bad reference or perhaps two versions being loaded into the same AppDomain somehow?

If you check all that and still think it is a a bug in our product, please make a new simple sample project that shows it happening and e-mail that to our support address.  Reference this post in yoru e-mail and rename the .zip file extension so it doesn't get spam blocked.  Thanks!
