I just tried compiling the WPF example code (on
http://www.ironpython.info/index.php/WPF_Example) with the pyc.py included
with the IronPython 2.0 samples, and the resultant assembly basically
doesn't work. When launched from the stub .exe, I get:
Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The calling thread
must be STA, because many UI components require this.
...followed by a big stacktrace, showing this was basically triggered by
the creation of a System.Windows.Input.InputManager as part of the
>From what I recall of my Windows development, this basically means the
thing that's creating the System.Windows.Window() is running in a
multithreaded apartment, and for arcane COM-related reasons, this isn't
allowed. Any ideas on how to go about fixing this?
(The sample runs fine if launched directly from ipy, FWIW)

the game would load before we died."
