CorFlags.exe (CorFlags Conversion Tool)

The CorFlags Conversion tool allows you to configure the CorFlags section of the header of a portable executable image.

This tool is automatically installed with Visual Studio. To run the tool, use the Developer Command Prompt (or the Visual Studio Command Prompt in Windows 7). For more information, see Visual Studio Command Prompt.

At the command prompt, type the following:

CorFlags.exe assembly [options]

If the flag is set on a DLL, the DLL fails to load in 64-bit processes, and a BadImageFormatException exception is thrown. An EXE file with this flag can be loaded into a 64-bit process.
