The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed. The designer inspected the following classes in the file: Form1 --- The base class 'System.Windows.Forms.Form' could not be loaded. Ensure the assembly has been referenced and that all projects have been built.

    Hello @André Verwijs

    I would suggest you to re install .net framework and Visual studio blend installation to see if it resolve the issue.

    Also, Please clean up C:\Windows\Temp and %AppData%\Local\Temo folder.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello again,

    Maybe you are trying to compile a x64 application? I have experienced this kind of issue as Visual Studio is a 32bit application, and if the designer is set for x64 instructions it will make it crash the compile.

    To resolve this: Design your app using the "Any CPU" option. This will cause your code to JIT to 32-bit on 32-bit platforms and 64-bit on 64-bit platforms.The designer will work in "any cpu" because the assemblies get jitted to 32-bit. When you need to debug 64-bit specifically, switch your build configuration to 64-bit (knowing that you must switch back to "32-bit or "any cpu" do form design)

    Hope this also helps in your case,
    Best regards,
