AppDomain.Load Method (String, Evidence)

Note: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is Load(String).

Loads an Assembly given its display name.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("Methods which use evidence to sandbox are obsolete and will be removed in a future release of the .NET Framework. Please use an overload of Load which does not take an Evidence parameter. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=155570 for more information.")]
public Assembly Load(
	string assemblyString,
	Evidence assemblySecurity
)

Parameters

assemblyString
Type: System.String
The display name of the assembly. See Assembly.FullName.
assemblySecurity
Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence
Evidence for loading the assembly.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.Assembly
The loaded assembly.

Implements

_AppDomain.Load(String, Evidence)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

assemblyString is null

FileNotFoundException

assemblyString is not found.

BadImageFormatException

assemblyString is not a valid assembly.

-or-

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

AppDomainUnloadedException

The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

FileLoadException

An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different evidences.

This method should be used only to load an assembly into the current application domain. This method is provided as a convenience for interoperability callers who cannot call the static Assembly.Load method. To load assemblies into other application domains, use a method such as CreateInstanceAndUnwrap.

For information that is common to all overloads of this method, see the Load(AssemblyName) method overload.
