ToolLocationHelper.GetPathToStandardLibraries Method (String, String, String)

Returns the path to the reference assemblies location for the given target framework's standard libraries (i.e. mscorlib). This method will assume the requested ReferenceAssemblyRoot path will be the ProgramFiles directory specified by Environment.SpecialFolder.ProgramFiles In additon when the .NETFramework or .NET Framework targetFrameworkIdentifiers are seen and targetFrameworkVersion is 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0 we will return the correctly chained reference assembly paths for the legacy .NET Framework versions. This chaining will use the existing GetPathToDotNetFrameworkReferenceAssemblies to build up the list of reference assembly paths.
