Hi,

When i use the Marshal.PtrToStructure i get the following error
The structure must not be a value class.Parameter name: structure.

I pass the function a IntPtr and and a reference to a structure Point.

As far as i can see this is done like Micrsoft says it's supposed to be done.

Hmm... try adding [StructLayout(LayoutKind.Sequential)] above your struct.
