Note: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is ShadowCopyDirectories.
Establishes the specified directory path as the location of assemblies to be shadow copied.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration <ObsoleteAttribute("AppDomain.SetShadowCopyPath has been deprecated. Please investigate the use of AppDomainSetup.ShadowCopyDirectories instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")> _ Public Sub SetShadowCopyPath ( _ path As String _ )
- Type: System.String
A list of directory names, where each name is separated by a semicolon.
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
By default, a shadow copy includes all assemblies found through probing. The method restricts the shadow copy to the assemblies in the directories specified by path.
The method does not specify additional directories to be searched for assemblies. Assemblies to be shadow-copied must already be located in the search path, for example under BaseDirectory. The method specifies which search paths are eligible to be shadow-copied.
For more information on shadow copying, see Shadow Copying Assemblies.
This method is now obsolete, and should not be used for new development.
