Description Chris Chu 2011-12-14 05:24:15 UTC
Try this:

_mySerializableClass = (MySerializableClass)info.GetValue("MySerializableClass", typeof(mySerializableClass));

In this case if MySerializabaleClass implement the ISerializable interface, the SerializationInfo.GetValue supposed to call the deserilization constructor .ctor(SerializationInfo info, SerializationContext context) of the class MySerializableClass. The current implement just call the empty constructor instead. 

I think this bug would not only effect the binary serialization but also XML serialization and cause multiple deserialization problems.
