Cast Misbehaves in 1.1 library running in a 2.0 App


I have this annoying problem with a cast failing from a DAL that was created
in 1.1 that I have included in a 2.0 app.

Every stored proc in our system uses an integer parameter to return an error
code. The following code works fine in 1.1 apps, and from a test app I made
in fully 2.0 apps. However, when I try to use the DAL from a 2.0 app that
uses the 1.1 compiled DAL, the following cast throws an invalid cast
exception (System.Invalid CastException: Specified cast is not valid.)

cmdToExecute.Pa rameters.Add(ne w SqlParameter("@ iErrorCode", SqlDbType.Int,
4, ParameterDirect ion.Output, true, 10, 0, "", DataRowVersion. Proposed,


// Execute query.
adapter.Fill(to Return);
_errorCode = (Int32)cmdToExe cute.Parameters["@iErrorCod e"].Value;

Is anyone able to confirm if this is a bug in the Framework, expected
behaviour, or otherwise?

I have a c# program in which I used cast. That worked perfectly on .Net platform 1.0. When I moved to .Net 2003, I am getting the execption "Specified cast is not valid". I have not made any changes to the code. Is there any difference in project settings or something else between v1.0 and v1.1? Thanks in advance. -- Raj
