any idea of what the following exception actualy means? I mean in usable programmer speak? All of the classes to be serialized have regular constructors. Is there some sort of special constructor for deserializing that I eveidently don't know about? I've been working on this UserDB set of classes for quite a bit longer than I wanted to and vbforums.com search doesn't find very much when I copy + paste "The constructor to deserialize an object of type was not found"
It's also bugging me that pressing F1 no longer brings you to a help page with a useful description of the exeception. Now, it brings me to a help page describing the intricate workings of the exception dialog which contains no more than four buttons...An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException' occurred in mscorlib.dll
Additional information: The constructor to deserialize an object of type GenericChatServer.Users was not found.
As you can probably tell, I'm a bit pissed.
