My test initialization looks like this:
BaseController mockedController = new BaseController();
         using (RecordExpectations recorder = RecorderManager.StartRecording()) {
            DashboardConfig mockDashboardConfig = new DashboardConfig("UnitTests");
            DashboardConfig dummy = mockedController.Config; /* line 694 */

The exception I'm getting is this:

TetraData.BaseControllerTests.BaseControllerMethods.TestDbConn : System.MissingMethodException : Constructor on type 'TetraData.Dashboard.Base.DashboardConfig' not found.

at TetraData.BaseControllerTests.BaseControllerMethods.TestDbConn() in c:dev7SourceTestsBaseControllerTestsControllersBaseControllerTests.cs:line 694

Notice that the exception happens at line 694 (notice comment in code). This is happening before any method is actually tested, so the Tracer doesn't help me.

The DashboardConfig class has two constructors, one that takes a string:
public DashboardConfig(string name);

and another constructor that takes an ISerializable type constructor:
protected DashboardConfig(SerializationInfo si, StreamingContext context)

I can't figure out why setting up this expectation throws an exception. Anyone able to help?

Adding a default constructor to the DashboardConfig class:
   public DashboardConfig() : this(string.Empty) { }

got rid of the exception. But I don't want this constructor on my class. Does TypeMock.Net require you to have a default constructor for setting up expectations for NaturalMocks?
