CreateValueForType generalizes ICorDebugEval::CreateValue by allowing you to specify an arbitrary object type, including constructed types such as List<int>. The only purpose of this method is to generate a value that can be passed to a function evaluation.

The type must be a class or a value type. You cannot use this method to create array values or string values.
