Server Error in '/' Application. Component Execution failed for component[0x0]  hr: 0x0 ProgID: Commerce.QueryCatalogInfo Type 'Microsoft.CommerceServer.Runtime.Configuration.CommerceResourceCollection' in Assembly 'Microsoft.CommerceServer.Shared, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' is not marked as serializable. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current Web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
