The exception that is thrown when an attempt to unload an application domain fails.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public class CannotUnloadAppDomainException : SystemException
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class CannotUnloadAppDomainException extends SystemException
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public class CannotUnloadAppDomainException extends SystemException

CannotUnloadAppDomainException is thrown when there is an attempt to unload:

  • The default application domain, which must remains loaded during the lifetime of the application.

  • An application domain with a running thread that cannot immediately stop execution.

  • An application domain that has already been unloaded.

CannotUnloadAppDomainException uses the HRESULT COR_E_CANNOTUNLOADAPPDOMAIN, which has the value 0x80131015.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of CannotUnloadAppDomainException, see the CannotUnloadAppDomainException constructors.
