MissingManifestResourceException Class

The exception thrown if the main assembly does not contain the resources for the neutral culture, and they are required because of a missing appropriate satellite assembly.

Namespace: System.Resources
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public class MissingManifestResourceException : SystemException
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class MissingManifestResourceException extends SystemException
public class MissingManifestResourceException extends SystemException
Not applicable.

MissingManifestResourceException uses the HRESULT COR_E_MISSINGMANIFESTRESOURCE which has the value 0x80131532.

MissingManifestResourceException uses the default Equals implementation, which supports reference equality.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of MissingManifestResourceException, see the MissingManifestResourceException constructors.


It is strongly recommended that your main assembly contains a neutral set of resources, so if a satellite assembly is unavailable, your application will have some acceptable behavior.
