This bug came up while using Microsofts WebAPI framework. It occurs when an interface method has either a Nullable<Guid> or Guid = default(Guid) parameter. Here is a console app to reproduce the issue:

using System;
using System.Reflection;

namespace ObfustactionTest
&#123;
	&#91;Obfuscation&#40;Exclude=true&#41;&#93;
	class Program
	&#123;
		static void Main&#40;&#41;
		&#123;
			var method = new Action&lt;Guid&gt;&#40;MyMethod&#41;;
			Console.Write&#40;"method:"&#41;;
			Console.WriteLine&#40;method&#41;;

			var param = method.Method.GetParameters&#40;&#41;&#91;0&#93;;
			Console.Write&#40;"param:"&#41;;
			Console.WriteLine&#40;param&#41;;

			Console.Write&#40;"RuntimeParameterInfo.DefaultValue:"&#41;;
			Console.WriteLine&#40;param.DefaultValue ?? "&#40;null&#41;"&#41;;

			Console.WriteLine&#40;"Success"&#41;;
			Console.ReadLine&#40;&#41;;
		&#125;

		public static void MyMethod&#40;Guid arg1 = default&#40;Guid&#41;&#41;
		&#123;
			Console.WriteLine&#40;arg1&#41;;
		&#125;
	&#125;
&#125;


Unobfustcated result:
method:System.Action`1&#91;System.Guid&#93;
param:System.Guid arg1
RuntimeParameterInfo.DefaultValue:&#40;null&#41;
Success


Obfustcated result:
method:System.Action`1&#91;System.Guid&#93;
param:System.Guid &#9787;
RuntimeParameterInfo.DefaultValue:
Unhandled Exception: System.BadImageFormatException: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. &#40;Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B&#41;
   at System.Reflection.MetadataImport._GetDefaultValue&#40;IntPtr scope, Int32 mdToken, Int64& value, Int32& length, Int32& corElementType&#41;

   at System.Reflection.RuntimeParameterInfo.GetDefaultValueInternal&#40;Boolean raw&#41;

    Can I take a wild guess that this was targeted for .Net 4.0 or above?

    It seems OK for .net 3.5 which, is very strange, I know but may serve as a workaround?
  • Options
    Yes - 4.0
    Unfortunately we are unable to target another version of the framework. Was the sample code adequate?
  • Options
    yes- the sample code shows the issue perfectly.

    We seem to have an issue with default parameters generally- I have created a new bug but there were some existing bugs of this nature too.

    It has been 5 months. Any updates?

    Any udates on this issue ?

    I'm having the same problem with a .NET 4.5.1 targetted MVC / WebAPI project, so i'm unable to run this project through SmartAssembly.

    The response i get calling a WebAPI method results in:
    &#123;"Message":"An error has occurred.","ExceptionMessage":"An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. &#40;Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B&#41;","ExceptionType":"System.BadImageFormatException","StackTrace":"   at System.Reflection.MetadataImport._GetDefaultValue&#40;IntPtr scope, Int32 mdToken, Int64& value, Int32& length, Int32& corElementType&#41;

    Thanks in advance.

    No updates, sorry.

    We are getting the same error, using SmartAssembly v6.8.0.121 and .Net 4.5.1

    Do you know how can I report this error to redgate? I have been told that redgate priorities errors due to the amount of reports submitted.

    Anyone knows?

    We have the same problems in ASP.NET MVC with the same version of smart assembly.

    As far as I could see problem appears for us only in case of nullable parameters with default value null. So as workaround we just removed default null value.
