Unknown type from ...

We have a global exception handler that detects some exceptions and gives the end-user a more meaningful message, such as "Connection lost", then they can continue. For some odd reason lately our global exception handler is failing. We detect a type, such as SqlException, but this fails and an exception report is sent. The odd thing is, in the exception report it says [Unknown type from ...].

Has anyone seen this before? Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for your post!

    I'm not certain but I think this issue may be happening if the assembly containing the "unknown type" was a dependency that did not actually have error reporting enabled on it (but may have had obfuscation applied). Just to confirm though, is the unknown type coming from your main protected assembly or indeed from one of its dependencies? If the latter, has it been processed by SmartAssembly?
