I've an issue rendering in vs2010, it throws the exception:

An unhandled exception was encountered while trying to render the current silverlight project on the design surface. To diagnose this failure, please try to run the project in a regular browser using the silverlight developer runtime.

I remember to see it well before build 8.8.6...



        private Balder.Core.Imaging.Image LoadTexture(string uri)
            // Todo: this is very hacky - refactoring of the asset system will make this not needed!
            var assetLoaderService = KernelContainer.Kernel.Get<IAssetLoaderService>();
            var loader = assetLoaderService.GetLoader<Balder.Core.Imaging.Image>(uri);
            var images = loader.Load(uri);
            if (images.Length == 1)
                return images[0];
            return null;

DesignTime support has not been added yet, so I'm expecting all kinds of trouble there until it is implemented and supported.
