    This feature requires service 'about 'Microsoft.Windows.Design.Services.ValueTranslationService' to be present, but it could not be located'

    Hello lin,

    I have not seen this error before, but after some investigation I managed to find some info. Most probably this is caused because you are missing Microsoft.Windows.Design.Extensibility.dll, it should be situated in
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies, if you don't have it there maybe you have something corrupted with .NET Framework installation. Another thing I can advise you is to install Blend Expression. As far as i know Blend installation should install Microsoft.Windows.Design.Extensibility.dll . If installing Blend itself doesn't help try to copy this dll to the path mentioned above.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best,
    Boyan

    I have the same problem after upgrading to 2010 Q1.
    But I have the dll in the proper directory in VS.
    How did you fix this problem?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    There is another problem in the Q1 design assemblies - you could download the fixed binaries from your account:
    http://www.telerik.com/account/downloads/product-versions/single-version.aspx?pmvid=2174&pid=0

    By the way, copying assemblies to the PublicAssemblies folder is no longer required.

    Best wishes,

    This is really bad advice ... the Microsoft.Windows.Design.Extensibility.dll from that directory is NOT a Silverlight assembly, it's a .NET framework assembly.
