XML Serialization problem related to framework versions

Hi all

I get an exception when trying to deserialize a simple configuration file
using XML Serialization. The very long stacktrace can be seen at the bottom
of this message. I've see other messages related a similar error but none
of the solutions suggested are valid in case :/

I have tracked the problem down to the compilation of the temporary DLL that
handles the actual serialization. The following commandline (that is one
single line) is executed by the framework when trying to deserialize my configuration:

"c:\windows\mic rosoft.net\fram ework\v1.1.4322 \csc.exe" /t:library /utf8output
/R:"c:\windows\a ssembly\gac\sys tem.xml\1.0.500 0.0__b77a5c5619 34e089\system.x ml.dll"

/R:"c:\program files\MyApp\MyC onfig.dll" /R:"c:\windows\m icrosoft.net\fr amework\v1.1.43 22\mscorlib.dll "
/out:"C:\DOCUME~ 1\User\LOCALS~1 \Temp\i2_6axn4. dll" /debug- /optimize+ /w:1
"C:\DOCUME~1\Us er\LOCALS~1\Tem p\i2_6axn4.0.cs "

Note that it uses the .NET 1.1 compiler and core lib but references the .NET
1.0 XML assembly. The result is that the assembly isn't created and hence
cannot be loaded.

I've specifeid the required runtime version in the .config file to be .NET
1.1 without any improvements.

The problems occur on a Windows XP test machine with both .NET 1.0 and 1.1.
The application is built using VS.NET 2003 on a machine with only .NET 1.1.
The user running the code on the test machine has administrative rights.

I've have tried the XmlSerializatio n precompiler and it works without problems...

Anyone have any ideas why this happens?

Kind regards,


System.Configur ation.Configura tionException: Unable to load configuration
from the XML configuration file: 'C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyA pp.exe.config'.
This can be caused by a number of problems, but the most common problem
is an incorrectly configured Updater configuration file.
The most probable sources of error are: missing nodes, incorrect
attribute names, white space within attributes or within elements,
white space between elements in the same sub-node, badly formed xml,
or xml that does not conform to the ConfigSchema.XS D. ---> System.Configur ation.Configura tionException:

Hi, there. Recently I was working on a problem where we want to save generic closures in a data structure (a vector). The closure should work for any data type and any method with pre-defined signature. When developing this lib, I figured that the pointer-to-member-function, although seemingly an attractive solution, does not work well for us.
