AppDomain.ExecuteAssemblyByName Method (AssemblyName, Evidence, String())
Note: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is ExecuteAssemblyByName(AssemblyName, String()).
Executes the assembly given an AssemblyName, using the specified evidence and arguments.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration <ObsoleteAttribute("Methods which use evidence to sandbox are obsolete and will be removed in a future release of the .NET Framework. Please use an overload of ExecuteAssemblyByName which does not take an Evidence parameter. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=155570 for more information.")> _ Public Function ExecuteAssemblyByName ( _ assemblyName As AssemblyName, _ assemblySecurity As Evidence, _ ParamArray args As String() _ ) As Integer
- Type: System.Reflection.AssemblyName
An AssemblyName object representing the name of the assembly.
- Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence
Evidence for loading the assembly.
- Type: System.String()
Command-line arguments to pass when starting the process.
Return ValueType: System.Int32
The value returned by the entry point of the assembly.
The assembly specified by assemblyName is not found.
The assembly specified by assemblyName was found, but could not be loaded.
The assembly specified by assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
Version 2.0 or later of the common language runtime is currently loaded and assemblyName was compiled with a later version.
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
assemblySecurity is not Nothing. When legacy CAS policy is not enabled, assemblySecurity should be Nothing.
The specified assembly has no entry point.
The ExecuteAssemblyByName method provides similar functionality to the ExecuteAssembly method, but specifies the assembly by display name or AssemblyName rather than by file location. Therefore, ExecuteAssemblyByName loads assemblies with the Load method rather than with the LoadFile method.
The assembly begins executing at the entry point specified in the .NET Framework header.
This method does not create a new process or application domain, and it does not execute the entry point method on a new thread.
for access to read from a file or directory, for access to the information in the path itself, and for redirecting a display name to a path. Associated enumerations: FileIOPermissionAccess.Read, FileIOPermissionAccess.PathDiscovery.
to load an assembly with evidence. Associated enumeration: SecurityPermissionFlag.ControlEvidence.
for access to a Web site, when a display name is redirected to a URL.
to execute a console application. Associated enumeration: PermissionState.Unrestricted.
