The message tells you what is wrong and where it is wrong; look at the XML that you are trying to read.

The problem might be with the

This will not load the XAML as a string, but "Sytem.IO.Filestream". I'm not used to Silverlight but the examples I have seen you should use

object content = XamlReader.Load(fileStream.ReadToEnd());//

I hope this will work.
