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

public static AppDomain CreateDomain(
	string friendlyName,
	Evidence securityInfo,
	string appBasePath,
	string appRelativeSearchPath,
	bool shadowCopyFiles,
	AppDomainInitializer adInit,
	string[] adInitArgs
)

Parameters

friendlyName
Type: System.String

The friendly name of the domain. This friendly name can be displayed in user interfaces to identify the domain. For more information, see FriendlyName.

securityInfo
Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence

Evidence mapped through the security policy to establish a top-of-stack permission set. Pass null to use the evidence of the current application domain.

appBasePath
Type: System.String

The base directory that the assembly resolver uses to probe for assemblies. For more information, see BaseDirectory.

appRelativeSearchPath
Type: System.String

The path relative to the base directory where the assembly resolver should probe for private assemblies. For more information, see RelativeSearchPath.

shadowCopyFiles
Type: System.Boolean

true to load a shadow copy of an assembly into the application domain. For more information, see ShadowCopyFiles and Shadow Copying Assemblies.

adInit
Type: System.AppDomainInitializer

An AppDomainInitializer delegate that represents a callback method to invoke when the new AppDomain object is initialized.

adInitArgs
Type: System.String[]

An array of string arguments to be passed to the callback represented by adInit, when the new AppDomain object is initialized.

Return Value

Type: System.AppDomain
The newly created application domain.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

friendlyName is null.

The method represented by adInit is executed in the context of the newly created application domain.

If securityInfo is not supplied, the evidence from the current application domain is used.

If the current application domain has an empty Evidence, SecurityException is thrown when creating a new application domain and passing null for securityInfo. An empty Evidence always results in an empty grant set. For example, a default application domain can have an empty Evidence if it is created from unmanaged code.
