Namespace change issues with Silverlight RIA Services

Problem

Recently, at my job, we have implemented a naming convention across all .Net projects.  In the process of updating some old projects to the new naming convention, I ran across an issue that did not prevent the solution from building, but gave a pesky runtime error. InitializeError #2103 – Invalid or malformed application - Code# 2103 Invalid or malformed application: Check manifest.

Solution

The problem lie within the fact that the Silverlight project references the Services project in the Properties/Silverlight tab.  For whatever reason, using F2 (Refactor->rename) does not change this reference.  To resolve the issue, simply re-select the RIA Services project from the dropdown and you should be good to go.
