    Hello dr,

    Do you have reference to System.Core Version=2.0.5.0?

    the reference is there, if i use your calendar control it compiles fine, but when i drop on the grid it gives me that lovely error.
    i have read that its an issue with silverlight.dll and i need to uninstall and reinstall everything, but i wanted to check here before i went thru that headache.

    i solved the problem if anyone else runs into this.

    Just add System.Core.dll, System.Windows.dll and system.dll to GAC(From C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\2.0 folder).

    i guess the telerik calendar control wasn't referencing this dlls while the grid was.

    Hello,

    Only to supplement the response, this error can occur when trying to open a project Silverlight3 on a machine in which there is only Silverlight4 installed for visual studio.
    So in this case, what happened to me, where the project was set to Silverlight3 and the machine was Silverlight4, just open the project properties and change "Target Silverlight Version" for release Silverlight4, a message will appear asking if you want to change Target Framework for the project click Yes and wait.
    In my case, this procedure solved the problem
    .

    Hi,

     Can you verify using the debugger where is the invalid XAML?

    Best wishes,
