Assembly.LoadWithPartialName Method (String, Evidence)

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

Loads an assembly from the application directory or from the global assembly cache using a partial name. The assembly is loaded into the domain of the caller using the supplied evidence.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[ObsoleteAttribute("This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")]
public static Assembly LoadWithPartialName(
	string partialName,
	Evidence securityEvidence
)

Parameters

partialName
Type: System.String
The display name of the assembly.
securityEvidence
Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence
Evidence for loading the assembly.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.Assembly
The loaded assembly. If partialName is not found, this method returns null.
ExceptionCondition
FileLoadException

An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different sets of evidence.

ArgumentNullException

The partialName parameter is null.

BadImageFormatException

assemblyFile is not a valid assembly.

-or-

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

Evidence is the set of information that constitutes input to security policy decisions, such as what permissions can be granted to code.

Applications that load assemblies with this method will be affected by upgrades of those assemblies. Therefore, do not use this method; redesign the application to use the Load method or the LoadFrom method.

This method first calls Load. If the assembly is not found, this method returns the assembly from the global assembly cache that has the same simple name, and the highest version number.
