Are you using a windows “tweak” utility as TGSoft ? Some third party software for “skinning” and modifying windows theme could be at the source of this problem.
When Xceed Smart UI for .NET tries to read the theme resource file, instead of a color it finds the “gradient(argb(….” expression.
Try switching back to the default WinXP Blue theme and retry.
