I've added the changes you described (console, print gettype argument) and both
with or without the two marked lines it does not NRE on microsoft for me:

        static void Main(string[] args)
            var typeName  = args[0];
            var assemblyName =  args[1];
            codebase =  args[2];
            AppDomain.CurrentDomain.AssemblyResolve += new

            // When the following two lines are removed this still works
against Microsoft, but fails under mono
            var assembly = Assembly.Load(assemblyName);
            Console.WriteLine("Loaded assembly [{0}]", assembly.FullName);

            var request = String.Format("{0},{1}", typeName, assemblyName);
            Console.WriteLine("requesting      [{0}]", request);
            var type = Type.GetType(request);
            Console.WriteLine("Loaded type     [{0}]",


I'll re-test with mono on monday.
