The type initializer for 'MyClass' threw an exception.

Hi all,

I have this class:

Public Class KanaConverter
Private Shared kana As ArrayList
Private Shared romanji As ArrayList

Shared Sub New()
kana = New ArrayList
romanji = New ArrayList
Dim r As Data.SqlClient. SqlDataReader = japDB.getHiraga na()
While r.Read()
kana.Add(r("hir agana"))
romanji.Add(r(" hiragana_roman" ))
End While
End Sub

Shared Function KanaToRomanji(B yVal sIn As String) As String
...
End Function
End Class

and when I do this in my page load:
Dim s As String = KanaConverter.K anaToRomanji("„ ĀĆ„ĀŹ„Āõ„ĀĄ")
it doesn't even get to the shared constructor and throws that exception
before :
"The type initializer for 'KanaConverter' threw an exception."

What is it supposed to mean?

The "shared constructor" *is* the type initializer. If you catch the
TypeInitializat ionException, you can look at the inner exception to
find out what was wrong.

I'm writing my first windows service. I have a class called 'mainprocess' whose constructor is called by the service class. Within mainprocess, I declare an instance of another class I wrote, called DBHandler, which does all of my Sql Database work. I have LogEvents everywhere and notice that the thread never gets inside the DBHandler constructor. Instead, it throws this error as a new instance of the DBHandler class is declared:...
