Failed to create a 'System.Type' from the text 'input:AutoCompleteBox'. [Line: 1 Position: 214]

I enabled the Silverlight debugger in the SterlingExample.Web project and got this error:

Failed to create a 'System.Type' from the text 'input:AutoCompleteBox'. [Line: 1 Position: 214]

The quickest solution is just to comment out the references to 'ExpressionDarkTheme' in MainPage.xaml

Yes, that's a defect in how the toolkit works. Another thing you can do is add references to all of the toolkit and control DLLs in the main project. What happens is it tries to parse tags for all controls, even if you aren't using those controls, and in debug throws up when the reference isn't there.
