Represents the error that occurs when a Assembly file is found but cannot be loaded.

The FileNotFoundException exception is thrown when the file fails to load because it cannot be located. If the file is located, but cannot be loaded due to insufficient permissions, a SecurityException is thrown.

FileLoadException has the default HRESULT of COR_E_FILELOAD, which has the value 0x80131621, but this is not the only possible HRESULT.

If your code does not have PathDiscovery permission, the error message for this exception may only contain file or directory names instead of fully qualified paths.
