A MissingSatelliteAssemblyException is thrown when the satellite assembly for the culture specified in the NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attribute is missing.

MissingSatelliteAssemblyException uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGSATELLITEASSEMBLY, which has the value 0x80131536.

MissingSatelliteAssemblyException uses the default Equals implementation, which supports reference equality.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the MissingSatelliteAssemblyException class, see the MissingSatelliteAssemblyException constructors.

NoteNote

It is strongly recommended that your main assembly contain a neutral set of resources so that if a satellite assembly is unavailable, your application will display some acceptable behavior.

The following code example displays the neutral language, fallback location, and fallback culture for a resource manager that is created for the current user interface culture or a culture specified on the command line.


using System;
using System.Resources;
using System.Globalization;
using System.Threading;

[assembly: NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute("de" , UltimateResourceFallbackLocation.Satellite)]

public class Demo
{
        public static void Main(string[] args) {
			
			// If a specific culture is passed in through the command line, use that -- otherwise
			// just use the current ui culture
		
			String strCulture = "";
			if (args.Length == 1) 
			{
				strCulture = args[0];
			}
		if (strCulture != "") 
		{
			try {
				Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(strCulture);
			}
			catch (ArgumentException e){
				Console.WriteLine(e.Message, "Bad command-line argument");
			}
		}
		else
			Console.WriteLine("Current culture is: {0}", CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.ToString());

		ResourceManager rm;

		try
		{
			rm = new ResourceManager("MyStrings", typeof(Demo).Assembly);
			NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute attr = new NeutralResourcesLanguageAttribute("de", UltimateResourceFallbackLocation.Satellite);
			Console.WriteLine("Neutral language = " + rm.GetString("Language") + ", Fallback location = " + attr.Location.ToString() + ", Fallback culture = " + attr.CultureName.ToString());
			Console.WriteLine(rm.GetString("MSG"));

		}
		catch (MissingSatelliteAssemblyException e){
			Console.WriteLine(e.Message, "Unable to locate satellite Assembly");
		}



        }

}
