Exception Type Condition
ReflectionTypeLoadException One or more classes in a module could not be loaded.
SecurityException The caller does not have the required permission.


ReflectionTypeLoadException is a special class load exception. The ReflectionTypeLoadException.Types property contains the array of classes that were defined in the module and were loaded. This array may contain some null values. The ReflectionTypeLoadException.LoaderExceptions property is an array of exceptions that represent the exceptions that were thrown by the class loader. The holes in the class array line up with the exceptions.

For example, if the class initializers of one of the classes throws an exception while it is being loaded, a TargetInvocationException is stored in the corresponding element of the LoaderExceptions array.
