System.Exception

System.Object

Remarks

Represents the error that occurs when a Assembly file is found but cannot be loaded.

The FileNotFoundException exception is thrown when the file fails to load because it cannot be located. If the file is located, but cannot be loaded due to insufficient permissions, a SecurityException is thrown.

FileLoadException has the default HRESULT of COR_E_FILELOAD, which has the value 0x80131621, but this is not the only possible HRESULT.

If your code does not have PathDiscovery permission, the error message for this exception may only contain file or directory names instead of fully qualified paths.

Note

This exception is not included in the .NET for Windows Store apps or the , but it is thrown by some members that are. To catch the exception in that case, write a catch statement for IOException instead.

Associated Tips

Make sure that the file is a valid .NET Framework assembly.
This exception is thrown if the file is not a valid .NET Framework assembly. For more information, see Assembly.

Check to make sure an assembly or module was not loaded twice with two different evidences.
Evidence is the set of information that constitutes input to security policy decisions, such as what permissions can be granted to code. For more information, see GacRemove and Evidence

If using the RegisterAssembly or UnregisterAssembly methods, check to make sure the assembly name is not longer than MAX_PATH characters.
The assembly name's length cannot exceed MAX_PATH. For more information, see RegisterAssembly and UnRegisterAssembly.

If loading a satellite assembly, make sure the specified CultureInfo matches the file's CultureInfo.
Satellite assemblies contain localized resources which contain non-localizable executable code and resources for a single culture that serve as the default or neutral culture. For more information, see GetSatelliteAssembly.
