I attempted to fire up the Tasks and Parallel Stacks debug windows today to help debug a problem and was met with an error dialog from Visual Studio.

I cannot see anything notable to help with reproducing this.

- I'm running Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise, Core 2 Duo E8500, 8GB RAM, 64-bit.
- We already have VS2012 Pro installed, with various plugins (R# 7.x, Slow Cheetah, SpecFlow, Ghost Doc Pro, Web Essentials, Tools for Git etc.)
- A fresh install of VS2013 Pro was installed. No plugins used. The option to import settings from previous version was ticked).
- Run VS2013 as Admin, loading our .NET 4.5 solution.
- Debug a fairly simple command line application
- Pause the debugging session, then attempt to view taks
- Error message comes up about unable to load xaml.

Not sure what else I can tell you.
