   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Console.WriteLine("This program throws an exception upon successful run.")
      Console.WriteLine("Generating TypeLoadException with custom message...")
         ' Generate a new instance of TypeLoadException.
      Catch e As TypeLoadException
         Console.WriteLine(("TypeLoadException: " + ControlChars.Cr + ControlChars.Tab + "Error Message = " + e.Message))
      Catch e As Exception
         Console.WriteLine(("Exception: " + ControlChars.Cr + ControlChars.Tab + "Error Message = " + e.Message))
