ApplicationData.Current.LocalSettings and DateTimeOffset.MinValue

   ApplicationDataContainer localSettings = ApplicationData.Current?.LocalSettings;
   localSettings.Values["foo"] = DateTimeOffset.MinValue;
   DateTimeOffset dto = (DateTimeOffset)localSettings.Values["foo"];

The last line of the above code throws the following exception

"Specified argument was out of the range of valid values."

    at System.DateTime.ToLocalTime(Boolean throwOnOverflow)
    at System.DateTimeOffset.ToLocalTime(Boolean throwOnOverflow)
    at System.StubHelpers.DateTimeOffsetMarshaler.ConvertToManaged(DateTimeOffset& managedLocalDTO, DateTimeNative& nativeTicks)
    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.IReference`1.get_Value()

    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.IMap`2.Lookup(K key)
    at System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.MapToDictionaryAdapter.Lookup[K,V](IMap`2 _this, K key)

What is the range of valid values?

When I tested the above code, it worked well. What's the value of your DateTimeOffset.MinValue? If you create a blank project to use the three lines of code, will the same issue occur? And what is the version number of your system and visual studio?

Thank you for looking into this.
DateTimeOffset.MinValue = {0001-01-01 12:00:00 AM +00:00}

When I used the same version to create a blank app and tested the three lines of code, it worked well. So can you provide a simple sample that can be reproduced for us to test? And can you show the detailed repro steps?
