VLV paginated group search not working in server.

What I have tried:

I use C# directoryServices to fetch it. when I implemented it I found that it was working find in windows 2022 server and the same was not working in windows 2019 server. It shows [The server does not support the requested critical extension.]. I searched google to enable VLV in server and I found its already enabled.

can someone help me with this. can this be fixed if we enable any settings.

Here is my code

using (DirectoryEntry entry = new DirectoryEntry(domainName, userPrincipalName, userPrincipalPassword))

    DirectorySearcher searcher = new DirectorySearcher(entry);
    searcher.VirtualListView = new DirectoryVirtualListView(st, end, off);

    searcher.Filter = criteria;
    searcher.Sort = new SortOption("name", SortDirection.Ascending);

    SearchResultCollection results = searcher.FindAll();

    if (results.Count>0)
        foreach (SearchResult result in results)
            Group group = new Group();
   = result.Properties["name"][0].ToString();

Exception: Unhandled Exception: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The server does not support the requested critical extension.

I get this exception when I run it.
