NotSupportedException

This method is not implemented for incomplete types.

Retrieve the type using Type.GetType or Assembly.GetType and use reflection on the retrieved type.

If this type is complete, for example, if CreateType has been called on this type, but there are nested types that are not complete, then GetNestedTypes will only return those nested types for which CreateType has been called.
