- Type: System.AppDomain

typeName or domain is null.
No matching public constructor was found.
typename was not found in assemblyName.
assemblyName was not found.

Cannot create an instance of an abstract type.
This member was invoked with a late-binding mechanism.
The constructor, which was invoked through reflection, threw an exception.
assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
The common language runtime (CLR) version 2.0 or later is currently loaded, and assemblyName was compiled for a version of the CLR that is later than the currently loaded version. Note that the .NET Framework versions 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5 all use CLR version 2.0.
An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different evidences.
The assembly name or code base is invalid.
Use CreateInstance when a host needs to execute code in an application domain that has restricted security permissions.
Use ObjectHandle.Unwrap to unwrap the return value.

requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
