I have VS2005 Team Edition. In my test, I am creating an instance of a class that I intend to test. When I execute, the 'new' statement throws an exception:

Test method UnitTest2.UnitTest1.TestMethod2 threw exception: System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for '<Module>' threw an exception. ---> <CrtImplementationDetails>.ModuleLoadExceptionHandlerException: A nested exception occurred after the primary exception that caused the C++ module to fail to load.
---> System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException: Serialization error..

The assembly containing the class does have a reference to a C++/CLR (interop) project. When I modify the experiment to instantiate a class in the interop project, I get the same behavior.

When I move the experiment to a simple console project and I can instantiate these classes without error. This would seem to point to a problem with the unit testing environment (vstesthost.exe?). I have made an edit to vstesthost.exe.config to set developerMode = True. To be fair, I added the same setting to my console application with no change in behavior.

I later discovered that the culprit was TypeMock 3.5.1. I then received a reply from TypeMock included below. Please send the indicated patch.
