In my updater application I store information about available updates in a dataset. This dataset contains the manifest but also some extra information about the users choices, which updates to download and install et c.

When I try to save the dataset to disk (using dataset.WriteXml('filename.xml') ) I'll get the following error message:

Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Updater.Manifest cannot be serialized because it does not have a parameterless constructor.

Does anyone know how I can save a dataset, that contains a manifest, to disk?
