I am getting below error when I load Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy.dll

Add-Type : Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.

+ Add-Type -Path $scriptPath"\DLLs\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy.dll"
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Add-Type], ReflectionTypeLoadException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.AddTypeCommand

I have added code as below:

Add-Type –Path $scriptPath"\DLLs\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll”
Add-Type –Path $scriptPath"\DLLs\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll”
Add-Type –Path $scriptPath"\DLLs\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy.dll"

$scriptPath is the path of my local folder. I am getting error only for Taxonomy DLL.

Do I need to install any csom components or load the DLLs in a different way for Taxonomy?

Does the dll exists in your folder?

You could download the SDK from below links.
