Runtime Settings Schema

Updated: May 2011

Runtime settings specify how the common language runtime handles garbage collection and the version of an assembly to use in configuration files.

Element

Description

<alwaysFlowImpersonationPolicy>

Specifies that the Windows identity always flows across asynchronous points, regardless of how impersonation was performed.

<assemblyBinding> Element for <runtime>

Contains information about assembly version redirection and the locations of assemblies.

<assemblyIdentity>

Contains identifying information about an assembly.

<bindingRedirect>

Redirects one assembly version to another.

<codeBase>

Specifies where the runtime can find an assembly.

<dependentAssembly>

Encapsulates binding policy and assembly location for each assembly.

<developmentMode>

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

<disableCachingBindingFailures>

Specifies whether the caching of binding failures, which is the default behavior in the .NET Framework version 2.0, is disabled.

<disableCommitThreadStack>

Specifies whether the full thread stack is committed when a thread starts.

<enforceFIPSPolicy>

Specifies whether to enforce a computer configuration requirement that cryptographic algorithms must comply with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS).

<gcConcurrent>

Specifies whether the runtime runs garbage collection concurrently.

<gcServer>

Specifies whether the common language runtime runs server garbage collection.

<legacyImpersonationPolicy>

Specifies that the Windows identity does not flow across user-defined asynchronous points.

<legacyV1CASPolicy>

Specifies whether the runtime uses legacy code access security (CAS) policy.

<probing>

Specifies subdirectories that the runtime searches when loading assemblies.

<publisherPolicy>

Specifies whether the runtime applies publisher policy.

<qualifyAssembly>

Specifies the full name of the assembly that should be dynamically loaded when a partial name is used.

<runtime>

Contains information about assembly binding and the behavior of garbage collection.
