    I created a user control and changed it into a RadWindow. The application is using the Windows 8 touch theme with an implicit style. The libarary version is Telerik 2014 Q3.

    The Visual Studio 2013 Designer shows either an empty window or a null reference exception when I have set references to Telerik Libraries in a custom folder. The Window is shown properly when the Telerik libraries are loaded from the installation folder. 

    I have used the technique as mentioned in:  The exception is shown in the designer when the style is applied to the window via Style ="{DynamicResource RadWindowStyle}" instead of setting it in App.xaml. The theme xaml files are loaded from the Theme dll.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Bert,

    I tested the described scenario with the latest release and was not able to observe any issues - RadWindow was visible in the designer. Can you please share some sample code demonstrating the exact set up in your application, so we can recreate it on our side? Meanwhile you can try deleting the bin/obj folders of the solution and rebuilding it afterwards.

    I'm looking forward to your response.
