A screenshot of the error dialog


1 - Create a new WPF workbook
2 - While the "Loading Workspace" or "Preparing Workspace" message is being shown (this takes a bit), open File | Add Package
3 - Type a character in search

Actual result:
- A (nice looking dialog ;)) with a generic NRE message shows

- Maybe disable the Add Package while loading isn't done yet?

I have checked this issue with Workbook and observed that before loading workbook project if we add a nuget package then on searching a nuget package throws NRE.
