Unable to Serialize Session State

Created asp.net program on VS2012 desktop development system and it works fine.

When I move the program to our web server I get the error "Unable to Serialize Session State" when I run program.

I have two or three string session variables and one arraylist stored in session variable.
The array list data is a struct consisting of three strings.

Program has only one aspx form with vbcodebehind.

What do I need to do to make this work outside of vs2012  (Framework 2.0)

any help with vb examples would be appreciated.

Check the Sessiona state setting on web server in config files . may be it is disabled.
Compare it with you local machine

I don't have any control of the server - it's a shared server I subscribe to.
Any other suggestions?

Code that causes error can be demonstrated by two subroutines below.
btnTA_Click saves an arraylist to session with no error
btnTS_Click saves an arraylist (Structure) to session and causes error.

Public Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Structure HoursData
        Dim Project As String
        Dim Activity As String
        Dim Hours As String
    End Structure

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

    End Sub

    Protected Sub btnTA_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnTA.Click
        Dim PinNumbers As New ArrayList
        PinNumbers.Add("1")
        PinNumbers.Add("2")
        PinNumbers.Add("3")
        Session("Pin") = PinNumbers  'THIS ARRAY IS SUCCESSFULLY SAVED TO SESSION
    End Sub

    Protected Sub btnTS_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnTS.Click
        Dim Dailywork As HoursData
        Dim Activities As New ArrayList
        Dailywork.Project = "Proj"
        Dailywork.Activity = "Act"
        Dailywork.Hours = "Hrs"
        Activities.Add(Dailywork)
        Session("Acts") = Activities 'THIS ARRAY CAUSES SERIALIZE ERROR WHEN SAVED TO SESSION
    End Sub
End Class

cannot do anything to configure server since it's shared server
