Bug in module loading from dll

I was trying to load modules from separate assemblies using the path to the dll file. However the path was correct, the loading failed, because the dll couldn't be found. Then I started to look around and found that the module type loader cuts the first character of the path, when separating the path from the file prefix: string path = moduleInfo.Ref.Substring(RefFilePrefix.Length + 1);

The bug is located in the LoadModuleType method of the FileModuleTypeLoader class.

Hi Csaba,

You might find this work item in the issue tracker useful, which describes a similar problem. One possible workaround for this, as explained in the work item, would be to write "file:///YourModuleName.dll" in the path for your module.

I hope you find this helpful.
