I need to apply theme file in windows form but I can't. When I use the code below I get error because there is no System.Windows.Application

StreamResourceInfo sri = System.Windows.Application.GetResourceStream(
                new Uri("App.xaml", UriKind.Relative));
            var resources = (System.Windows.ResourceDictionary)Load(sri.Stream); 
            var app = new System.Windows.Application();

Thank you

Windows Forms and WPF are two distinct technologies.  You can't mix and match them.  However, you can host a WPF control in a Windows Forms control (and vice-versa).  See these links for more informarion:
