Solved Exception in Passing Relative URI to Windows Runtime

While working today on a Windows Store Application I had a requirement to work with URI. Business class was as follows,



And I created instance of Product class in usual way setting values for both properties. I had put all images in ProductImages folder.




On running application I got following exception that given System.Uri cannot be converted.



After small research I found that WinRT does not support Relative URI. It only supports Absolute URI.




Now I fixed above problem by converting Relative URI to Absolute URI.




Exception got fixed after changing URI as absolute URI. I hope you find this quick fix useful. Thanks for reading.
