My application exe behaves like not instrumented to use DevExpress.libz ?

Apr 19, 2014 at 11:38 AM
Hi I am new to merging and libz tool,

I have tried to use it to merge devexpress dlls using this:
libz add --libz DevExpress.libz --include DevExpress*.dll --codec deflate --move
ibz instrument --assembly meds_app.exe --libz-file DevExpress.libz

when I executed meds_app.exe on another pc it behaved like that meds_app.exe is not instrumented at all to use DevExpress.libz ?
and I had this exception:
System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: The method or operation is not implemented. ---> System.NotImplementedException: The method or operation is not implemented.

any help will be appreciated

If you don't know how to dump messages produced by trace, use TraceTool.

Might be identical to issue #7. Resolved in

I have the same problem with v
Also I don't have HKLM\Software\Softpark\LibZ, HKCU\Software\Softpark\LibZ keys ?

I have tried instrument my assembly on another machine I got this exception:
libz instrument --assembly myapplication.exe --libz-file wpf.libz

There are multiple things here.
  • The 'MSVCR100.dll' problem is related to missing Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable missing from the 'other' machine. Install it or delete lz4.libzcodec. Anyway, the embedding worked fine (this exception was throw on exit and is not related).
  • Your initial problem still remains a mystery. Can you send me (PM + dropbox) your assemblies and a script you use to merge them? What about trace?

Hi Krashan,

My initial problem was related to applying devexpress themes in Xaml like this:

I resolved it partially, given that when I apply a theme using code behind (ThemeManager.ApplicationThemeName = Theme.Office2010SilverName) for example, the theme will not be applied on Gridcontrols (Datagrid) ? do you have experienced this kind of issues?

best regards,

Not really. I mean all the exception related to embedding assemblies manifest themselves as "FileNotFoundException". As .NET tries to load assembly and cannot find it. This one is "System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException". It might, of course, related but it is nothing obvious. I haven't seen anything like this before.
