Assembly.LoadWithPartialName Method (String)

NOTE: This method is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is Load.

Loads an assembly from the application directory or from the global assembly cache using a partial name.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")] 
public static Assembly LoadWithPartialName (
	string partialName
)
/** @attribute ObsoleteAttribute("This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") */

	String partialName
)
ObsoleteAttribute("This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") 
public static function LoadWithPartialName (
	partialName : String
) : Assembly
Not applicable.

Parameters

partialName

The display name of the assembly.

Return Value

The loaded assembly. If partialName is not found, this method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Exception typeCondition

NullReferenceException

The partialName parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

BadImageFormatException

assemblyFile is not a valid assembly.

-or-

Version 2.0 or later of the common language runtime is currently loaded and partialName was compiled with a later version.

Applications that load assemblies with this method will be affected by upgrades of those assemblies. Therefore, do not use this method; redesign the application to use the Load(String) method overload or the LoadFrom(String) method overload.

This method first calls Load. If the assembly is not found, this method returns the assembly from the global assembly cache that has the same simple name, and the highest version number.
