if this application is being run from a network share, you will need to increase the trust level for the application assemblies, I would suggest assigning FULL trust to the entire UNC path this application is running from , as .NET does not trust assemblies run through network shares by default.

That's exactly what the site host tech support said. The site is being moved to a full trust server.
