A work-around for this exception is to edit the currency symbol to be a $ (dollar) instead of a £ (UK sterling) symbol.

The simple fix is:

ProductEditView - line 49


if (double.TryParse(view.Price.TrimStart('$'), out db))


if (double.TryParse(view.Price.TrimStart(NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo.CurrencySymbol.ToCharArray()), out db))

and add:

using System.Globalization;
