New To GUIDs

I have used CSLA in a number of incarnations, but always avoided using the GUID (in favor of an int).

I am trying to do a new project now (using CSLA 3.8.3) using GUIDs and I am running into a strange issue.

Here is my ID Property:

    Private Shared IdProperty As PropertyInfo(Of Guid) = RegisterProperty(New PropertyInfo(Of Guid)("Id"))
    <System.ComponentModel.DataObjectField(True, True)> _
    Public ReadOnly Property Id() As Guid
            Return GetProperty(Of Guid)(IdProperty)
        End Get
    End Property

When I do a New, I call this.

LoadProperty(Of Guid)(IdProperty, Guid.NewGuid)

My IdProperty, after this call is all 0s (in a GUID format).

I played around with something like this:

Dim g as Guid = Guid.NewGuid.  The result of this is that g comes back with what looks like a valid Guid., but if I mouse over the +, it expands out and shows an "Empty" property with is all 0's.

The bottom line error I am getting is :

DataPortal.Update.failed (System.ArgumentException: No mapping exists from object type Csla.PropertyInfo 1

My best guess would be take the () off the ID property declaration. The Guid with all zeros can be checked for using Guid.Empty, which is a Guid's default value.

All the properties use the () after them.

The Guid wasn't my issue.  Please disregard, I am all set.
