AppDomain.ClearPrivatePath Method

NOTE: This method is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is PrivateBinPath.

Resets the path that specifies the location of private assemblies to the empty string ("").

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("AppDomain.ClearPrivatePath has been deprecated. Please investigate the use of AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")] 
public void ClearPrivatePath ()
/** @attribute ObsoleteAttribute("AppDomain.ClearPrivatePath has been deprecated. Please investigate the use of AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") */ 
public final void ClearPrivatePath ()
ObsoleteAttribute("AppDomain.ClearPrivatePath has been deprecated. Please investigate the use of AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") 
public final function ClearPrivatePath ()
Not applicable.

Exception typeCondition

AppDomainUnloadedException

The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

The private path is a path relative to the base directory that the common language runtime searches to locate private assemblies.

For more information, see AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ClearPrivatePath method to remove all entries from the list of private paths to search when assemblies are loaded.

This method is now obsolete, and should not be used for new development.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Security.Policy;  //for evidence object

class ADAppendPrivatePath
{
	public static void Main()
	{
		//Create evidence for new appdomain.
		Evidence adevidence = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Evidence;

		//Create the new application domain.
		AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", adevidence);

		//Display the current relative search path.
		Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

		//Append the relative path.
		String Newpath = "www.code.microsoft.com";
		domain.AppendPrivatePath(Newpath);

		//Display the new relative search path.
		Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

		//Clear the private search path.
		domain.ClearPrivatePath();

		//Display the new relative search path.
		Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is now: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

 
		AppDomain.Unload(domain);	
	}
