XAML Exception when deploying Ribbon

Hello-

I am able to compile and run our app (which contains the Ribbon) on my development box, but cannot successfully deploy it to other client computers (who don't have the Ribbon SDK installed). Everyone else who tries to run it gets this exception:

System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException was unhandled
Message="Cannot create instance of 'Window1' defined in assembly 'adCenter, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. Error in markup file 'adCenter;component/adCenterShell.xaml' Line 2 Position 3."

The main window has as a child, this user control which references the Ribbon:
<UserControl
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
  xmlns:ribbon="http://schemas.actiprosoftware.com/winfx/xaml/ribbon"
    x:Class="adCenter001.acRibbonUC"
    x:Name="UserControl"
    Width="Auto" Height="Auto">
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
         <ribbon:Ribbon x:Name="ribbon" > .... </ribbon:Ribbon>
        </Grid>
</UserControl>
Note:

1. If I comment out the <ribbon:Ribbon> node everything runs fine on the client computers.

2. I have a full license on the dev box. I copied the licenses.licx file from the Sample to my project and added it as an embedded resource. I have never gotten a "please register" dialog on this box so it appears the license is working there.

3. Both ActiproSoftware.Ribbon.WPF30 and ActiproSoftware.Shared.WPF30 are referenced in the project, and since "copy local" is true, these two DLL's are deployed to clients in the same directory as my EXE.

4. I'm using VS 2005 on XP, with the November Orcas CTP.


I haven't seen this addressed in the forums - what is causing this?

Thanks in advance,

Rolf

Exceptions that occur when XAML is being built are sometimes tough to sort out at first glance. What you have to do is figure out what the innermost exception is within that root one since that is generally the root of the problem. Then either post back or email that to us.

Also if you'd like, email us a ZIP with your EXE and we'll load it here to see if the license data was properly embedded in your app or not.

Hi Rolf,

Thanks for sending over the app. Found the issue and it's actually with your Infragistics stuff, not ours. But here's how I determined that...

1) Run the app.
2) You get a VS JIT debugger window.
3) Choose to debug with VS 2005.
4) It will show the exception dialog in VS 2005.
5) Click to View Exception detail.
6) On the View Detail page, you need to expand out all the InnerExceptions to get to the innermost one. That is always the cause of the problem when there are XAML errors. Sometimes this is many levels deep. Hopefully Microsoft makes this sort of thing easier in Orcas.

Anyhow when I look at the lowest one, the message is:
"Could not load file or assembly 'Infragistics3.Windows.Editors.v7.1, Version=7.1.20071.316, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7dd5c3163f2cd0cb' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

The one above that says:
"The type initializer for 'Infragistics.Windows.DataPresenter.DataPresenterBase' threw an exception."

If you follow it up more, this is blowing up in the creation of a XamlDataGrid by your acManagerDataUC. So anyhow, that's what's causing it.

Bill-

Well, it turns out that the other Infragistics component was indeed causing the above problem, but even after removing it from the project I was still getting crashes. The new stacktrace I got was:

System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException was unhandled
Message="Only Setter or EventSetter elements are valid direct children of Style element. 'ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Ribbon.Controls.ContextualTabGroup' is not valid. Error at object 'System.Windows.Style' in markup file 'ActiproSoftware.Ribbon.WPF30;component/Themes/Ribbon.xaml'."

Which I thought was pretty odd - an exception inside the Ribbon DLL. I eventually realized that this box had a very late, but still non-RTM version of .NET 3.0 installed, and that's what caused this particular trace. Uninstalling .NET 3.0, and then reinstalling it from the Microsoft website, made the error go away.

Hope this helps other people if they happen to come across this.

Hehe, yes running on a non-RTM .NET installation would definitely cause issues. Thanks for the update!
