Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2015-01-09 09:26:02 UTC
This is the bug caused by using MSBuild::Compile as the generator for xaml files. I can't find the other bug which was dealing with this.
Comment 3 Stephane Delcroix 2015-05-29 08:38:20 UTC
The project was created with an old version of the XF tools.

For those old .csproj file, you have to manually update and replace 




new xaml files are created with the right generator
Comment 4 Rajneesh Kumar 2015-06-02 11:32:02 UTC
As per comment 3, I have checked this issue and follow the instruction and observed that this issue get resolved. By doing so user is able to run the application and it does't throws the Exception  when user runs app after changing in xaml.
