Fluent:RibbonWindow crashes VS2008

Everytime I try to set the window to a Fluent:RibbonWindow crashes. Any ideas?

I am using VS2008 .net 3.5

Hi Adam,

Here is the code:

<Fluent:RibbonWindow x:Class="WpfApplication1.Window1"
    Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300">

                <!--   <ResourceDictionary Source="/RibbonControlsLibrary;component/Themes/Office2007Blue.xaml" /> -->
                <ResourceDictionary Source="pack://application:,,,/Fluent;Component/Themes/Office2010/Blue.xaml" />
            <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
        <Fluent:Ribbon Grid.Row="0">
Code behind:
namespace WpfApplication1
    /// <summary>
    /// Interaction logic for Window1.xaml
    /// </summary>
    public partial class Window1 : Fluent.RibbonWindow
        public Window1()

If I edit the Window1.xaml and change the Fluent:RibbonWindow to Window then the project opens fine.
I have uploaded the sampled project here: http://cid-d40c19d81787f0af.office.live.com/self.aspx/Public/FluentRibbonWindowIssue.rar
Many thanks

Hate to tell you your code ran perfectly fine on my machine. I don't see any trouble in your code. You might have something messed up in your Visual Studio.

Oh crap!!!...Thanks Adam for trying it out. I am running window7, may i ask what is yours?

Windows 7, But using Visual Studio 2010. Also I'm using .Net 4.0 for my applications not 3.5, but even then like I said I downloaded your example and ran it fine here. So you constructed it fine on your end. Why it's giving you an error there I don't know. I would suspect if you have a 3rd party addon running in your Visual Studio environment.
