Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2017-03-03 22:33:17 UTC
Location for assemblies using the bundled mechanics is completely useless.

The returned value should make it possible to read the assembly.

The following should work with bundled assemblies:

string loc = typeof (TypeOnBunbledAssembly).Assembly.Location;
Assembly assembly = Assembly.ReflectionOnlyLoadFrom (loc);
Comment 1 Rodrigo Kumpera 2017-03-03 22:59:36 UTC
This makes AssemblyTest::ReflectionOnlyLoadFrom not work on XA.
