As soon as I open the Xaml designer file I get this error, in both vs 2012 and 2013 express editions. This is particularly happening after updating to windows 8.1. Any idea why?

[3548] Designer process terminated unexpectedly!

I've just got same error, ruined 2 days for fixing it.

I noticed, that in the Event Viewer errors appearing with such description:

I rebooted in the safe mode (msconfig->boot->safe mode) and deleted folder C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.8428_none_d08a11e2442dc25d\. To delete it I got a ownership of it (in the properties of the folder).
This fixed error for me. But I dont know side effects.

Hi but it got fixed automatically after the windows update over windows 8.1 that was already running on my computer. I sense it is bug with express 2013 over windows 8.1 home edition. Thanks for the response though it might be useful for some who still face this issue even after installing the updates.

If there is a progress bar on the form, try removing its effects. I had a problem with that.
