Description andreas.flucke 2011-09-19 07:41:26 UTC

Tescase (sources,assemblies,Exception) zipped

When trying to call an proxy object in a newly created AppDomain this Exception occurs (see Exception.txt).
The "Callee.dll" assembly is loaded via byte-array into the new AppDomain by "Caller.exe" (EnumProxy.cs is Callee and Caller.cs is Caller.exe")
(Callee.dll has to be referenced by Caller.exe)

This happens on Linux (2.10.2) and OSX too.
(Windows and OSX: 2.10.5)

BTW: please review my 47 Novell Mono Bugs
(some may be solved, but others are important like 547274)

Comment 1 Zoltan Varga 2011-09-27 15:37:26 UTC
This happens because the serialization code ends up calling
		AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Load ("System");
which doesn't work in MS.NET either.
Comment 2 andreas.flucke 2011-09-28 02:12:24 UTC
No, this code definitely works in MS.Net (i'm using it).
(And it should work, because a loaded assembly should resolve/load the assemblies it depends on.)
Comment 3 Zoltan Varga 2011-09-28 08:02:16 UTC
I meant the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Load ("System"); line which our serialization code ends up calling.
Comment 4 Marek Safar 2015-03-20 05:54:36 UTC
Fixed in master
