Steps to reproduce:
1) Open VS
2) Don't open any solution
3) Open the previewer (View > Other Windows > Xamarin.Forms previewer)
Actual: User is greeted with a error dialog "Exception has been thrown by the target of Invocation"
Expected: It would be better if the window would just open and be blank, just like most of the other pads in Visual Studio.
