I have created a very simple map package using Desktop. When I run the template WPF app up pointing to this map package I get a window with the esri water mark but then I get an exception.

BTW running it in its online mode works fine. So I guess it might be the map package.

I am running on windows 7 64-bit with Visual Studio 2010. I get a similar sort of issue when running in Java.
