<developmentMode> Element

Specifies whether the runtime searches for assemblies in directories specified by the DEVPATH environment variable.

   <runtime>
      <developmentMode>

Required Attributes

Attribute Description
developerInstallation Specifies whether the runtime searches for assemblies in directories specified by the DEVPATH environment variable. Use one of the following values:
true
Searches for assemblies in directories specified by the DEVPATH environment variable.
false
Does not search for assemblies in directories specified by the DEVPATH environment variable. This is the default.

Remarks

<configuration>
   <runtime>
      <developmentMode developerInstallation="true">
   </runtime>
</configuration>
