how can i deserialize an object that is not referenced by the current Assembly. everytime i try to do this, it throws an exception indicating that the Assembly is not recognized or found. the thing is, the object that I deserliazed was created by using Activator.CreateInstance pointing to a particular Assembly.

So when performing the deserialization process, how can i ask the deserialize operation to refer to this particular Assembly?

the easiest thing to do is to implement the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.AssemblyResolve event before performing the desrialization operation. Have a look at the following code :

// Deserialization method
ResolveEventHandler lca = new ResolveEventHandler(LoadComponentAssembly);

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.AssemblyResolve += lca;
            
object anObject = sf.Deserialize(sw.BaseStream);

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.AssemblyResolve -= lca;

// Method for event

private static Assembly LoadComponentAssembly(object sender, ResolveEventArgs args)
{
   string simpleName = args.Name.Substring(0, args.Name.IndexOf(','));
  string assemblyPath = Path.Combine("..\\Agent\\",  simpleName + ".dll");
  return Assembly.LoadFrom(assemblyPath);
}
