Description Brett van Swelm 2013-12-03 12:55:21 UTC
For this reproducer I used the Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.12.0.dll and Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.12.0.dll assemblies found here: https://github.com/jaredpar/VsVim/blob/master/References/Vs2013/Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.12.0.dll

With "D:\Applications\Mono-3.0.9\bin" and
"C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319" in the path on my Windows 7

===== Test.cs =====
class X {
    System.Type c = typeof(Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop._VSRDTFLAGS4);
===== end =====

$ csc /target:library /r:Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.12.0.dll /r:Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.12.0.dll Test.cs

This is noPIA feature. One of the types is  embedded interop type. We don't support noPIA yet
