C# Remoting RefObject do not works fine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am a newer in Remoting. Recently I want to to write a windows service with Remoting. 

    Below is the MarshalByRefObject I have defined. But when I call the fuction StartCapProcess() with correct the parameter from the client side this sentence "Application.Run(capform);" always failed.

    I have tried to call this function directly without using the Remoting. It works find.

    Can anyone tell me where is the problem?


        public class TMCapture: MarshalByRefObject
            public Boolean StartCapProcess(string capPara)
                TMTrace.Log("Start initial the capture process.");
                    string parameter = capPara;
                    int i = parameter.IndexOf(" ");
                    if (i != -1)
                        string[] Paras = parameter.Split(' ');
                        string portNo = Paras[0];
                        string capModel = Paras[1];
                        TMTrace.Log("The capture process is start with port number:" + portNo + " capture mode:" + capModel);
                        Form1 capform = new Form1(Convert.ToInt16(portNo), capModel);
                    TMTrace.Log("The capture process is finished.");
                    return true;

                    TMTrace.Log("Some error happened in the process of capture.");
                    return false;

            /// <summary>
            /// Helper for working with logging.
            /// </summary>
            internal static class TMTrace
                public static void Log(string s)
                    Log(TraceEventType.Information, s);
                public static void Log(string format, params object[] parameters)
                    Log(TraceEventType.Information, format, parameters);
                public static void Log(TraceEventType severity, string format, params object[] parameters)
                    Logger.Write(string.Format(format, parameters), "TMCaptureService", 0, 0, severity);

  • We need to know the exact error that you are getting when you call Application.Run(capform).

    Can you share the error and the failure call stack?

    You can share a full building repro code with me for a check. Also what is the framework version that you are using?

    Please share your complete building code with me at for a review.
