Though this may not be the suitable forum to ask this question , i believe that there are experts in this field as well. I am using VF61 SOM and Viola carrier board running windows 7 embedded compact and developing windows forms application using C#. I was able to serialize and deserialize the object contents to the file using desktop version of the framework. But same when tried using compact framework 3.5 it is not supporting. So what other options i have to achieve serialization of the object contents to the file ?
