Exception typeCondition


At least one of the callers higher in the callstack does not have permission to configure remoting types and channels.

Any client that knows the URI of a registered well-known object can obtain a proxy for the object by registering the channel it prefers with ChannelServices, and activating the object by calling new or Activator.GetObject. To activate a well-known object with new, you must first register the well-known object type on the client using the RegisterWellKnownClientType method. Calling the RegisterWellKnownClientType method gives the remoting infrastructure the location of the remote object, which allows the new keyword to create it. If, on the other hand, you use the Activator.GetObject method to activate the well-known object, you must supply it with the object's URL as an argument, so no prior registration on the client end is necessary.

For a detailed description of well-known objects, see Server Activation.
