Topics: Prism v4 - Silverlight 4

I'm trying to modify the Quickstart Modularity Project in the Microsoft Prism download and when I make a change I receive a Malform Application message and even if I undo the change the error message persists. What I'm trying to do is add a View user control to the module which basically has a class with a download visual indicator.

Based on my understanding, I believe that this error is not strictly related to Prism, but to Silverlight. As far as I know, this kind of error seems to appear in a Silverlight application when, for example, you have a wrong startup object in the project's properties.

You can find more information about this error and the possible causes behind it in the following links:

I hope you find this useful,
