This is the bug caused by using MSBuild::Compile as the generator for xaml files. I can't find the other bug which was dealing with this.
The project was created with an old version of the XF tools.
For those old .csproj file, you have to manually update and replace
new xaml files are created with the right generator
As per comment 3, I have checked this issue and follow the instruction and observed that this issue get resolved. By doing so user is able to run the application and it does't throws the Exception when user runs app after changing in xaml.
This issue has been fixed hence I am closing this issue.
