C# and WPF

I've an application build with C# and WPF, that is being developed by 3 developers, including me.
On a certain stage of the application, an error came up that we can't determine how it happened and how to
solve it, so we ask for your help. Although everything works well when compiling, and running the aplication, we can't see the window in design view. Instead we have the following error message on the Visual Studio IDE:

"An Unhandled
Exception has occurred

reload the designer

startIndex cannot be larger than length of string.

at MS.Internal.Host.Isolation.IsolatedDesigner.Load()
at MS.Internal.Designer.DesignerPane.LoadDesignerView(Boolean isReload)"

We've tried to see if we could solve this
using Expression Blend, but apparently everything is ok in Blend. We can see the
window (although the programmers aren't using blend, so we need it to work in
Visual Studio). I've installed SharpDevelop to see i the problem could be solved
from it, but Sharpdevelop shows the window as a grey window, without any objects
on it and has the following output:

target "ResolveAssemblyReferences" does not exist in the project.

and when building gives the following

Build started.
Warning MSB3247: Found conflicts between different versions of
the same dependent assembly.
Build finished successfully.

We've been googling and trying several
workarrounds but we haven't found the solution.
Can you please

My thanks in advanced
