Symptom

When calling AppDomain.SetData() for a newly created domain, the following exception may be thrown:

System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException

    Not all delayed fixup objects could be resolved. Such objects could be cyclic IObjectReferences,

    IObjectReferences that return other IObjectReferences too many times (i.e. objects with too

    long an IObjectReference chain) or nested valuetypes.

Cause

This is a bug in the listed products which can be triggered when marshaling by value a complex object, for instance a collection object containing ~100 elements, between AppDomains with the SetData call.

Resolution

This is a bug in listed versions of the .NET Framework but there are a number of ways to work around:

1) Derive your class from MarshalByRefObject so that it will be marshaled by ref instead of by value.

2) Or, set the following environment variable for the process:

    set complus_UserNewDomainRemoting=0

3) Or, use a configuration file for the application:

    <configuration>

        <runtime>

            <UseNewCrossDomainRemoting   enabled=false/>

        </runtime>

    </configuration

4) Or,  by setting a DWORD registry value HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft .NETFramework UseNewCrossDomainRemoting to 0  (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE can be used as well)
