You are not creating o as an object of type sampleGAC.TestClass.
You are setting o equal to a reference to the class object.  The
class object does not have a member called ReturnTest() -- though
if ReturnTest were static, this would work.

Same issue.  "o = System.DateTime(2004, 9, 16)" will work, because
you will then actually invoke the constructor.
