    Everytime I start the example program I get (after a variable amount of time) an error saying the application stopped and need to be closed.

    I am on Vista with all the latest updates... Is this a know issue ?

    Hello Mat,

    Usually such problems in our examples are connected to configuration issues with our connection string. In your installation directory for RadControls for WPF (presumably C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for WPF Q2 2008) you will find the folder Examples.CS (or Examples.VB, if you prefer). In that folder, you will find a file named "Telerik.Windows.Examples.exe.config" (or "Examples.VB.exe.config", respectively).

    First, you are advised to backup this file, and then configure the connection string contained within. Most probably, you will need only to change the Data Source property: we set it to point to SQLEXPRESS, and you should set it to the name of your SQL server instance. The sample Northwind database we use should be automatically attached (it is located in the \DataSources folder).

    Please, do not hesitate to contact us again if you encounter any further problems.

    All the best,
