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

public int ExecuteAssemblyByName(
	AssemblyName assemblyName,
	Evidence assemblySecurity,
	params string[] args
)

Parameters

assemblyName
Type: System.Reflection.AssemblyName

An AssemblyName object representing the name of the assembly.

assemblySecurity
Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence

Evidence for loading the assembly.

args
Type: System.String[]

Command-line arguments to pass when starting the process.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The value returned by the entry point of the assembly.

ExceptionCondition
FileNotFoundException

The assembly specified by assemblyName is not found.

FileLoadException

The assembly specified by assemblyName was found, but could not be loaded.

BadImageFormatException

The assembly specified by assemblyName is not a valid assembly.

-or-

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

AppDomainUnloadedException

The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

MissingMethodException

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.

NoteNote:

When you use the ExecuteAssemblyByName method with an Evidence parameter, pieces of evidence are merged. Pieces of evidence supplied as an argument to the ExecuteAssemblyByName method supersede pieces of evidence supplied by the loader.
