Workaround

Workaround 1

Add the following lines in the configSection of the App.Config file of the application:

<section name="SqlColumnEncryptionEnclaveProviders"
type="System.Data.SqlClient.SqlColumnEncryptionEnclaveProviderConfigurationSection,
System.Data, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

Note  If your application doesn't include an app.config file, we recommend that you create and deploy an app.config file that contains this information in the configSection.

If Workaround 1 doesn't work, try Workaround 2.

Workaround 2

Identify a place in the app domain that runs before any objects have been added to the logical call context. Add code to force ConfigurationManager to try to load a section that doesn't exist in any configuration files. For example:

System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.GetSection("SectionNameThatDoesNotExistInAnyConfigurationFile");

For more information about this issue see the GitHub article Mitigation: Deserialization of objects across app domains.
