The exception that is thrown when the satellite assembly for the resources of the default culture is missing.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|MissingSatelliteAssemblyException()||Initializes a new instance of the class with default properties.|
|MissingSatelliteAssemblyException(String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with the specified error message.|
|MissingSatelliteAssemblyException(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)||Initializes a new instance of the class from serialized data.|
|MissingSatelliteAssemblyException(String, Exception)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.|
|MissingSatelliteAssemblyException(String, String)||Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified error message and the name of a neutral culture.|
|CultureName||Gets the name of the default culture.|
|Data||Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|HelpLink||Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|HResult||Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|InnerException||Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Message||Gets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Source||Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|StackTrace||Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|TargetSite||Gets the method that throws the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetBaseException||When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetObjectData||When overridden in a derived class, sets the SerializationInfo with information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|GetType||Gets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)|
The default culture is the culture whose resources are loaded if the appropriate culture-specific resources cannot be found. By default, resources for the default culture are located in the main assembly, and a MissingManifestResourceException is thrown if the resource manager tries to retrieve but cannot find a resource for the default culture. However, the .NET Framework will load the resources for an app's default culture from a satellite assembly if the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute specifies a value of UltimateResourceFallbackLocation::Satellite for the location parameter. When this is the case, the exception is thrown when the resource manager tries to retrieve a resource of the default culture and the satellite assembly for the culture specified in the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute is missing. Note that the exception is thrown by a resource retrieval method such as ResourceManager::GetString or ResourceManager::GetObject, and not when the ResourceManager object is instantiated.
uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGSATELLITEASSEMBLY, which has the value 0x80131536.
uses the default Equals implementation, which supports reference equality.
For a list of initial property values for an instance of the class, see the MissingSatelliteAssemblyException constructors.
You should always use the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute to define your app's default culture so that if a resource for a specific culture is unavailable, your application will display acceptable behavior.
The following example uses the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute to indicate that English is the app's default culture and that its resources are stored in a satellite assembly. The example itself includes resources in .txt files for the English and French cultures, as described in the following table:
The following source code builds an app that changes the current UI culture first to French (France) and then to Russian (Russia) and displays an appropriate culture-specific resource in both cases.
You can use the following batch file to build and execute the C# version of the example. If you're using Visual Basic, replace csc with vbc, and replace the .cs extension with .vb. When the example is executed, it displays a French language string but throws a exception when the current culture is Russian (Russia). This is because the satellite assembly en\HelloWorld.dll that contains the resources of the default culture does not exist.

You can use the following batch file to build and execute the Visual Basic version of the example. If you're using C#, replace vbc with csc, and replace the .vb extension with .cs. When the example is executed, it displays a French language string when the current UI culture is French (France). When the current UI culture is Russia (Russian), it displays an English language string because Russian language resources do not exist, but the resource manager is able to load the resources of the default culture from the satellite assembly en\HelloWorld2.dll.
