Outlook Addin fails after installing .net framework 3.0

Hello

I had successfully compiled and deployed an outlook add-in, that hosts third party controls (i.e. Infragistics controls) and WPF control using crossbow, .net framework 2.0 and winfx runtime components July CTP. Till this point, all went fine accordingly but I did uninstall winfx runtime components and instead installed .net framework 3.0 but I faced problems afterwards. I had read that WPF, WCF and WF are inclusive as part of the .net frameowrk 3.0 package.

I wonder whats wrong here after this exersice of upgrading to .net framework 3.0. Attached herewith is a sample image showing the type of error encountered. Stack trace reveals that XamlParseException is thrown indicating that .xaml convertion to .baml resulted in exception due to a call to InitialzeComponents in the WPF control's constructor.

Any ideas on how to rectify and resolve this issue.
Thanks in advacne for your time and consideration.

Hi Minhaj.

Did you test a simple add-in without third party controls?
Did it work under .NET v3.0?

Thanks for your time and kind considerations.

I ran through & tested different alternate scenarios like

1. Compiling a very basic sample using .net framework 3.0
2. Creating a sample ADX porject focusing crossbow
3. Running an animated WPF window using XAML/story-board effects

Fortunately all above scenarios worked as expected and went fine but combining case #2 & 3, i.e creating an ADX extensibility project hosting animated wpf usercontrol using crossbow resulted as usual in run-time error. Although compilation goes successful but during outlook add-in display in the inspector/explorer window throws decent XmlParseException :(

Hi Minhaj.

I think that you have compiled the add-in using the wrong version of the
'System.Windows.Markup' assembly. Please check the version of the assembly on the development PC and the target one.
