  • Which version of Tridion are you using? Aug 24, 2013 at 7:45
  • @user678 - Did you manage to find a solution to this problem? If so, could you please accept an answer or 'self answer'? If you have not managed to solve it yet, can you add more details to the question please? Sep 19, 2013 at 18:10
  • what Tridion and what Java version are you using? And are you using 64 or 32 bit?

This looks very similar to some errors you might see when the wrong Juggernet files are deployed to your web application. I suggest you check that you have followed the installation guide as closely as possible.

As this is a DD4T installation, of course, you will also need to check that you have followed the relevant guidance from the DD4T project.

Typically - problems like this arise if you fail to deploy all the files correctly - perhaps the version you have used is for the wrong word length (32 bit vs 64 bit) or you have deployed files from the wrong Tridion version, or failed to deploy files that are required.

The type conversions that Juggernet does from Java types to .NET types are great when they work, but when they don't you get this kind of message.
