The "SplashScreen" parameter is not supported by the "MarkupCompilePass1" Error

You get the "SplashScreen" parameter is not supported by the "MarkupCompilePass1" error message when create and run WPF applications in Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Microsoft.WinFx.targets file.
