Ordinarily the Application.Current.RootVisual.Dispatcher property is used to retrieve the System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher for an application. Of course this won't work if performed before the RootVisual has been assigned. To get the Dispatcher for an application before the RootVisual has been assigned, use the System.Windows.Deployment.Current.Dispatcher property.
 
C#:
var dispatcher = Deployment.Current.Dispatcher;
 
VB.NET:
Dim dispatcher As Dispatcher = Deployment.Current.Dispatcher
