I am working on a project that based on Silverlight 5.
I want to load a resourcceDictionary by c# code.
For this work, I am using this code.

var url = new Uri(@"pack://application/PIPM2.MainVisual;component/"
                               + "Theme/Red.xaml", UriKind.Absolute);
            Application.Current.Resources.MergedDictionaries.Add(new ResourceDictionary() { Source = url });

But I got this error =>
Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Stack Trace =>
at MS.Internal.XcpImports.CheckHResult(UInt32 hr)
at MS.Internal.XcpImports.SetValue(IManagedPeerBase obj, DependencyProperty property, String s)
at MS.Internal.XcpImports.SetValue(IManagedPeerBase doh, DependencyProperty property, Object obj)
at System.Windows.DependencyObject.SetObjectValueToCore(DependencyProperty dp, Object value)

at System.Windows.DependencyObject.SetValueInternal(DependencyProperty dp, Object value, Boolean allowReadOnlySet, Boolean isBindingInStyleSetter)

How can I solve this problem ?

Please try below code and Set your file's property (Right click on that file)
1) Build Action : Content
2) Copy to Output directory: Copy if newer

ResourceDictionary rd = new ResourceDictionary();
rd.Source = new Uri("/Theme/Red.xaml", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);
