When a class initializer fails to initialize a type, a TypeInitializationException is created and passed a reference to the exception thrown by the type's class initializer. The InnerException property of TypeInitializationException holds the underlying exception.

TypeInitializationException uses the HRESULT COR_E_TYPEINITIALIZATION, that has the value 0x80131534.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of TypeInitializationException, see the TypeInitializationException constructors.
