Does this mean that you have referenced a .dll that contains the exact
class or merely added the class .vb file into the second project? If
you just added the .vb file to the second project, you are not using
the same class. It is a completely different type, even though the
code is the same.

Your best bet is to place the class you want to (de)serialize into its
own Class Library and then reference it from both projects. That will
insure that you are (de)serializing the *same* type.
