FileLoadException

The satellite assembly with a matching file name was found, but the CultureInfo or the version did not match the one specified.

FileNotFoundException

The assembly cannot be found.

BadImageFormatException

The satellite assembly is not a valid assembly.

Satellite assemblies contain localized resources, as distinct from main application assemblies, which contain non-localizable executable code and resources for a single culture that serve as the default or neutral culture.

If version is null, the current assembly version is used if both the resource and main assemblies are signed.
