AppDomain.Load Method (Byte)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
abstract Load : rawAssembly:byte -> Assembly override Load : rawAssembly:byte -> Assembly
- Type: System.Byte
An array of type byte that is a COFF-based image containing an emitted assembly.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection.Assembly
The loaded assembly.
rawAssembly is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
rawAssembly is not a valid assembly.
Version 2.0 or later of the common language runtime is currently loaded and rawAssembly was compiled with a later version.
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different evidences.
Beginning with the .NET Framework 4, the trust level of an assembly that is loaded by using this method is the same as the trust level of the application domain.
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.
The following sample demonstrates the use of loading a raw assembly.
For this code example to run, you must provide the fully qualified assembly name. For information about how to obtain the fully qualified assembly name, see Assembly Names.
