RegistrationException Class

The exception that is thrown when a registration error is detected.

Namespace: System.EnterpriseServices
Assembly: System.EnterpriseServices (in system.enterpriseservices.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
public sealed class RegistrationException : SystemException
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public final class RegistrationException extends SystemException
SerializableAttribute 
public final class RegistrationException extends SystemException

The following code example contains a catch block that shows how to handle a registration exception.

    // install as a COM+ application, the COM+ application name, and 
    // the name of the type library file.
    // Setting the application name and the type library to NULL (nothing in Visual Basic .NET
    // allows you to use the COM+ application name that is given in the assembly and
