It is the responsibility of ResolveEventHandler for this event to return the assembly that resolves the type, assembly, or resource.
To register an event handler for this event, you must have the required permissions, or a SecurityException is thrown.
For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
The following sample demonstrates the AssemblyResolve event.
For this code example to run, you must provide the fully qualified assembly name. For information about how to obtain the fully qualified assembly name, see Assembly Names.
