I used to get this one in an MTS environment, when using setAbort and setComplete, and then accessing methods/properties of the object (solved by using DisableCommit/EnableCommit instead).

It doesn't look like that matches your problem, but I just thought I'd post it on the off-chance that it does.

I updated Visual Studio SP to 5 and ditributted the application. It starts working. But still I am not very clear about the problem.

Thanks for comments
