Project that produces the bug/error

When running the attached program on Mono-develop 2.8 with in Windows 7 32 bit. The invoked class does not throw an exception. The mod object is just set to 'Illegal character in path'.

I think it has something to do with the 
   string[] assemblies = new string[]
as this returns a path (but am not sure if this is relevant).
I have tried hard coding the paths and changing the '\' to '/' with in the paths.

As a side note this program works fine in VS2008 and with Mono-develop on Mac.
