C# – System.InvalidOperationException: Unable to generate a temporary class (result=1)

c++input

I have developed an application using .net 3.5 and have deployed it as an .exe on a number of machines with the same environment.
However, on one particular machine I get the following error. Stack Trace:


See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

System.InvalidOperationException: Unable to generate a temporary class (result=1).

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


Could someone help me with this?

As I am new to .net could someone also tell me when why a temporary class needs to be created in the first place?

Best Solution

I just spent a lot of time searching for the answer to this so I thought I'd add it here to save some headache for others. If you use the xsd.exe tool to generate your cs it may have added double arrays [][] where an array should be []. Replace all [][] with [] in your generated cs file and retry.
