Assembly: System.AddIn (in System.AddIn.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|

Use this class to load add-ins into a desired environment, which can be one of the following:
An existing application domain for which you have the AppDomain object.
An application domain that was automatically generated to activate an add-in.
An existing external process.
To obtain the object for an add-in, pass the add-in's application domain to the class constructor. Alternatively, you can use the AddInEnvironment property of the AddInController class to obtain the add-in's object.
After you obtain the object, you can do the following:
Pass that object to the appropriate Activate method overload. The add-in will be activated in the application domain and process that is represented by the object.
Use the Process property to obtain an AddInProcess object. Then pass that object to the appropriate Activate method overload. The add-in will be activated in the process that is represented by the AddInProcess object but in a new application domain.
