Invoking WPF from CsScript..
Hi - I'm having what I believe to be DLL loading issues when trying to run a simple WPF example (directly copied from I've used CsScript for other code that either interfaced with other programs or invoked web services - is there a problem invoking WPF or do I have a simple coding issue? In the past the main issue with assembly references were resolved by adding the right path and DLL names to the options string. And yes - I haven't figured out where to load the XAML from yet but I figured I'd do that after the program successfully loaded. Any help appreciated.

Here's the output:
Copy      Help
64 bit path
Error (RT) in WPFTest:  0x80131600,
    WPFTest(29,14): error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Windows' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
    WPFTest(31,42): error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Windows' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
    WPFTest(37,30): error CS0246: The type or namespace name 'RoutedEventArgs' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?).    ?

And the function itself:

Function WPFTest
Copy      Help
;; WPF test

str options

if (_win64 == 1)
,out "64 bit path"
,;; 64 bit machine
,options = "searchDirs=C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0;[]references= PresentationFramework.dll;PresentationCore.dll;WindowsBase.dll;System.Windows.Forms.dll;System.Windows.Presentation.dll;System.Core.dll;System.Xml.dll;System.ServiceModel.Web.dll;System.Runtime.Remoting.dll"
,out "32 bit path"
,;; 32 bit machine
,options = "searchDirs=C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v3.5\Profile\Client\[]references= PresentationFramework.dll;PresentationCore.dll;WindowsBase.dll;System.Windows.Forms.dll;System.Windows.Presentation.dll;System.Core.dll;System.Xml.dll;System.ServiceModel.Web.dll;System.Runtime.Remoting.dll"
CsScript x.AddCode("");;

IDispatch o = x.CreateObject("MainWindow");


//css_inc Hello.xaml;
//css_ref WindowsBase;
//css_ref PresentationCore;
//css_ref PresentationFramework;
using System;
using System.Windows;

public partial class MainWindow : System.Windows.Window
,public MainWindow()
,void OnClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
,,MessageBox.Show("Hello World!");

,public static void Main()
,,MainWindow wnd = new MainWindow();
SetOptions must be before AddCode.
CsScript x.SetOptions(options)
Then I get error InitializeComponent.
I'm not familiar with WPF, cannot help much.
