Any time I call System.Resources.ResourceManager:ReleaseAllResources() method I get System.InvalidCastException.
For example I load texts from aspx.resx files to aspx pages with the function below. The text loads successfully, but becouse of the lobjRM.ReleaseAllResources() call it does not return the value.
Is the lobjRM.ReleaseAllResources() call needed anyway? I found in the .Net docs that "this method will shrink the working set in a running application". That is only why I use it.

    Public Function LoadRes(ByVal tstrResource As String, ByVal tstrResID As String) As String
        Dim lstrModul As String
        Dim lobjAssembly As System.Reflection.Assembly
        Dim lobjRM As System.Resources.ResourceManager
        Dim lstrText As String
            If tstrResource.IndexOf("."c) >= 0 Then
                'Ha a modulnv benne van az tadott resource nvben, akkor onnan veszi ki:
                lstrModul = tstrResource.Substring(0, tstrResource.IndexOf("."c))
            End If
            lobjAssembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadWithPartialName(lstrModul)
            If lobjAssembly Is Nothing Then Return Nothing

                lobjRM = New System.Resources.ResourceManager(tstrResource, lobjAssembly)
                lstrText = lobjRM.GetString(tstrResID)
                If Not lobjRM Is Nothing Then lobjRM.ReleaseAllResources()
            End Try

            Return lstrText
        Catch ex As Exception
            Response.Write(ex.GetType().ToString & "<br />" & ex.StackTrace)
        End Try
