desrialization throwing a "Parse Error exception"

I am trying to deserialize using the SoapFormatter.

The object I am trying to deserialzed is not directly referenced by the current assembly and class.
However, i added the particular assembly to the current AppDomain using the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Load(rawAssembly, rawSymbolStore);

I thought this would work. but instead it throws an exception with the message:
Message      "Parse Error, no assembly associated with Xml key a3:http://schemas.microsoft.com/clr/nsassem/TestAgent/AgentPlay%2C%20Version%3D1.0.1577.29029%2C%20Culture%3Dneutral%2C%20PublicKeyToken%3Dnull AgentPlay"      string


The required assembly is already loaded to the currently utilized AppDomain, how can I get the SoapFormatter to refer to the Assembly, when performing the desrialization process.

thanks kindly in advanced.

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);
}
