public class InvalidPipelineStoreException : Exception

Unlike DirectoryNotFoundException, this exception does not provide any path information. This prevents a malicious user from deliberately specifying erroneous paths and using the information returned by the exception to determine actual paths.

This exception is thrown by the following discovery methods that build and update the store of add-in and pipeline information: FindAddIns,Rebuild, RebuildAddIns, Update, and UpdateAddIns.
