The issue was that my views are in a folder called Views the Navigation Service looks for the view pages in the root folder of the application. Hence I had to customise the NavigationService class by modifying the path to the folder.

From
var testvalue = (type.FullName.Substring(type.FullName.IndexOf('.')).Replace('.', '/')) + ".xaml";
to
var testvalue = "/Views" + (type.FullName.Substring(type.FullName.IndexOf('.')).Replace('.', '/')) + ".xaml";

Hope this helps someone.

Seems I made a mistake, I forgot to update the namespace after moving the views. The code works flawlessly.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Glad you got it working though.

PS. I would be embarrassed to admin the number of times a namespace has gotten me when moving my views. This was especially true when I use caliburn.micro and its conventions are a bit more hidden. anyway...
