You run a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)-based application on a computer that has Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installed. When a TextBox control of the application receives the focus, a NullReferenceException exception may occur that causes the application to crash.
This issue occurs because the Input Method Editor (IME) mode of the TextBox control enters a state that causes a NullReferenceException exception when it receives a notification from the TextBox control.
Note This notification is sent after the TextBox control receives the focus.
To resolve this issue, apply the hotfix package that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
