Description Gabriel Garcia 2015-04-08 00:19:25 UTC
Assembly.get_location() returns an empty string for assemblies loaded from memory.

Assembly.InternalGetSatelliteAssembly uses that location string directly in a call to Path.GetDirectoryName, which then fails with: System.ArgumentException: Invalid path

This is unexpected behavior.

** Test case **

At least my Mono version d86446f from April 2nd has this problem.

It is more likely caused by a recent change in resource lookup:


From March 23rd

I sent a PR that fixes this bug (I forgot to link it here): https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/1693

As stated in the PR description, I'm not sure if this is a sensible solution to the problem. I.e. if it follows reference .NET behavior.
