From the "What could possibly go wrong?" department: starting a WPF application (verified offenders are MsbuildG and VistaBridge from the Windows Vista SDK) crashes Vista. Or the graphics driver to be more precise. The result is nonetheless a perfectly reproducible BSOD on my IBM X31 laptop. The funny part? This ATI Mobility driver (6.14.10.6546) came from the Windows Vista Update Service and is MS HW Compat signed!

Very strange. Does this happen with all WPF apps?
A good place to start may be the WPF forum (http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=119&SiteID=1)

I just tried AeroWizardDemo - same BSOD: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_MEMORY for the ATI driver. The application frame came up for like a split-second, then the crash happened (so something during WPF init must be crashing the driver). I did try to install the Catalyst driver, but the setup program for the Catalyst driver stopped working... presumeably I will have to wait with WPF development till IBM / Lenovo come out with their ATI / Vista driver.
