AppDomain.ExecuteAssemblyByName Method (String)
Executes an assembly given its display name.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
assemblyName is Nothing.
The assembly specified by assemblyName is not found.
The assembly specified by assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
Version 2.0 or later of the common language runtime is currently loaded and assemblyName was compiled with a later version.
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
The assembly specified by assemblyName was found, but could not be loaded.
The specified assembly has no entry point.
The ExecuteAssemblyByName method provides similar functionality to the ExecuteAssembly method, but specifies the assembly by display name or AssemblyName rather than by file location. Therefore, ExecuteAssemblyByName loads assemblies with the Load method rather than with the LoadFile method.
The assembly begins executing at the entry point specified in the .NET Framework header.
This method does not create a new process or application domain, and it does not execute the entry point method on a new thread.
