I have the given Exception from Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 when inserting a Silverlight Templated Control (Silverlight4 Project). Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004005 (E_FAIL). VS is running on Windows 8.
A class file is added to the project but no template.

The problem still exists.

After seeing that visual state editing is not supported in VS 2012 Update 2 and now these problems are giving me some doubts about the usability of VS 2012 for Silverlight development. A pitty cause i like VS 2012 and in our company meanwhile we avoid installing VS 2010 on developer machines.
