In certain circumstances code generation tool omits to generate code that loads resources from app.xaml

At least the circumstances is:
Application has no StartupUri attribute set in App.xaml
there is only one resoure in <Application.Resources> section of App.xaml

There is a workaround discussed in the "StackOverflow" link mentioned by "Serdis". The work around it to use the "Startup" event rather than the "OnStartup" override.

The App.InitializeComponent() is generated if you set *either* the "StartupUri" or "Startup" event on the App Element in App.Xaml.
