teething problem start app

I was getting, "Failed to create a 'System.Type' from the text 'input:AutoCompleteBox'"

I needed to add "some" controls from SDK\Silverlight\Client, SDK\Silverlight\tools to the client reference. Annoying because it all seemed to compile fine. Unfortunatley I've yet to narrow down exactly what is needed because I just added the lot!

I noticed these errors while debugging, but it never occurred to me that they were an issue. Everything works without problems if you ignore them. However, I think they are caused by the styles under the Assets folder. All thoses style cover the entire set of Silverlight SDK and Toolkit controls. In my current project, I had to remove the styles I didn't use to get rid of the errors. I should do that with this demo site as well, or accept having to reference all toolkit assemblies.
