The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

Attribute

Description

xmlns

Required attribute.

Specifies the XML namespace required for assembly binding. Use the string "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" as the value.

Child Elements

Element

Description

<linkedConfiguration> Element

Specifies a configuration file to include.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

<configuration> Element

The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.

The <linkedConfiguration> Element simplifies the management of component assemblies by allowing application configuration files to include assembly configuration files in well-known locations, rather than duplicating assembly configuration settings.

NoteNote

The <linkedConfiguration> element is not supported for applications with Windows side-by-side manifests.

The following code example shows how to include a configuration file on the local hard disk.

<configuration>
   <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
      <linkedConfiguration href="file://c:\Program Files\Contoso\sharedConfig.xml"/>
   </assemblyBinding>
</configuration>
