Strange problem with XmlSerializer creating duplicate end tags

I have several objects that I'm saving to disk via the XmlSerializer. 80% of
the time this works fine, but occasionaly it will create a file like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<SystemOption s xmlns:xsi="http ://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:xsd="http ://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<AssetDirectory >C:\Documents and Settings\sklett \Local
<ProductLabelPr inter>Adobe PDF</ProductLabelPri nter>

Note the double </SystemOptionsta gs. Anyone ever run into this?

Here is the code doing the serialization in case it helps:

public void Save()
using (FileStream stream = File.Open(FullP ath,
FileMode.OpenOr Create, FileAccess.Writ e))
_serializer.Ser ialize(stream, this);


Thanks for reading,

It sounds to me like the second tag was left-overs from the file
contents previous... i.e. you have over-written part of the file

Have you tried deleting the file first and starting from fresh?

Deleting is a good idea, I never thought of that. I haven't used
XmlSerializatio n much and when I have it always works so well (too easy
maybe) that I just figured it would "take care of everything and work
perfect" :)

I've added code to delete the file first, hopefully that solves it, makes
sense that it would.
Thanks for the suggestion!

XmlSerializer is doing its job just fine; FileStream is the culprit

I am trying to find a solution that will allow me to use XmlSerializer to serialize/deserialize a collection of objects where a given object is shared between two or more other objects, and not create duplicate XML representations of the shared object, but instead use IDREFs to refer to the shared object. The XML I'm trying to produce is as follows (where "href" is an IDREF): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <MyRootClass...

Hi, I implemented a composite pattern which should be serializable to xml. After spending some time in the newsgroups, i finally managed serializing, even with utf-8 instead of utf-16, which causes ie problems. But when deserializing the xml into the object structure, the following exception is beeing thrown: There is an error in XML document (3, 701).

Hi all, i'm trying to serialize a class. Using the constructor of XmlSerializer i get these (odd?) errors: "File or assembly name goseij9w.dll, or one of its dependencies, was not found". Everytime i run the testprogram it complains about another exotically named dll like et_kn-hl.dll or afeaqisr.dll. Even the example from msdn throws these errors. Anyone knows wuts wrong?

I am using some Microsoft examples that: 1. Serialize an object using XmlSerializer and write a file out to the harddrive. 2. Read back in the file using XmlDocument.Load and populate a string. What I would like to do is use MemoryStream to do this instead of writing to the harddrive, but I am lost in the readers, writers etc. Can someone show me how to to this using a memory stream. thanks

Hi, I've hit quite a strange problem with XmlSerializer on my W2K3 server. When I serialize/deserialize using an exe on my local computer (XP), everything works fine. When I put the code out on the server (W2K3) it throws an exception. It only seems to happen when serializing/deserializing _arrays_ of a type. If I just serialize/deserialize one instance, it works fine. The exception I get is: (sorry for the word wrapping.)...

I am using an XmlSerializer to save some settings and I have discovered that when a string is saved containing a cr+nl it is replaced with just a newline when loading back in. I am no expert with XML and I wonder if there is a option I have to change to fix this. I have written some simple test code to show the problem. Can anyone please tell me why the cr+nl is being replaced by just a newline and how to stop this happening? Thanks
