The type was previously created using CreateType.
parent is null, and the current instance represents an interface whose attributes do not include Abstract.
parent is an interface. This exception condition is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.
If parent is null, Object is used as the base type.
The method does not check for most invalid parent types. For example, it does not reject a parent type that has no default constructor when the current type has a default constructor, it does not reject sealed types, and it does not reject the Delegate type. In all these cases, exceptions are thrown by the CreateType method.
