Could not load type 'System.Windows.Forms.AxHost/State'

I have a windows forms application, which is using internet browser imported as ActiveX Control into C# (from c:\windows\system32\shdocvw.dll).
Method InitializeComponent() initializes browser as follows:
    this.axWebBrowser1 = new AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser();

    // axWebBrowser1
    this.axWebBrowser1.Enabled = true;
    this.axWebBrowser1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 33);
    this.axWebBrowser1.OcxState = ((System.Windows.Forms.AxHost.State)(resources.GetObject("axWebBrowser1.OcxState")));
    this.axWebBrowser1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(478, 420);
    this.axWebBrowser1.TabIndex = 4;
After obfuscating this code with verion 6.5 of {Smart Assembly} and running apllication I get following error:
System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'System.Windows.Forms.AxHost/State' from assembly 'System.Windows.Forms, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.

This is happening since upgrade from version 6.0 to 6.5. Is this connected with no more support for .NET framework 1.1?

    It's definitely nothing to do with .NET Framework 1.1. It has something to do with SmartAssembly 6.5 making changes to the built-in resource reader so the state of the ActiveX object can't be accessed. This is logged as a bug with our internal reference of SA-1316.

    In the meantime I'd suggest rolling back to SA v6.2 if you can.

    I Have this same issue, we've automated our build and when I revert to 6.2 I get the error
    SmartAssembly build failed: The type initializer for 'SmartAssembly.ConsoleApp' threw an exception.
