ChartView: Add support for Direct2D rendering over Remote Desktop

It appears the ChartView is also affected by the same SharpDX issue that affected the RadWebCam when it is used over Remote Desktop. 

A simple test of any series will replicate the issue. If it is being used via Remote Desktop, the series will not render.

Hi Brian,

When using Remote Desktop WPF switches to the Software Rendering mode. Direct2D, however, does not support rendering in software mode under .Net 4.0. This support was added in .Net version 4.5 so the solution to the problem at hand is to change your target framework to .Net 4.5 (or later) and reference the Telerik UI for WPF assemblies version 4.5. This will allow you to use the Direct2D render mode of RadChartView under Remote Desktop as well as in Windows environments where software render mode is enforced.
