Having designed an app UI involving the DockManager plus two TabWindow, which in turn contain controls, I find that after the VS2013/15 project is opened and I show the design view in VS I get a null pointer exception dialog. As well as the dialog I get a red rectangle shown in the ToolWindow, one then after a moment or two in the other. Having failed to discover anything useful about this issue, can you shed light on how to get around such a problem.
I have had to delete the two tool windows plus the DockManager object (which after the null pointer exception cannot be "opend" from its smart tag)...so am faced with "starting again"...not a pleasant task.
I would appreciate your earliest feedback...
Thanks and regards

p.s. could you please confirm again the correct and ONLY set of winforms/SyntaxEditor/Shared libraries that I should have installed for a fully consistent ecosystem of controls/types...thx
