AppDomainSetup.ShadowCopyDirectories Property

Gets or sets the names of the directories containing assemblies to be shadow copied.

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

public string ShadowCopyDirectories { get; set; }
/** @property */
public final String get_ShadowCopyDirectories ()

/** @property */
public final void set_ShadowCopyDirectories (String value)

public final function get ShadowCopyDirectories () : String

public final function set ShadowCopyDirectories (value : String)

Property Value

A String containing a list of directory names, where each name is separated by a semicolon.

By default, a shadow copy includes all assemblies found through probing. The ShadowCopyDirectories property restricts the shadow copy to the assemblies in the directories specified by ShadowCopyDirectories.

All directories specified by PrivateBinPath, including the directory specified by ApplicationBase, are not shadow copied by default if this property is not set.

If an executable file is in use, updates to the executable file are stored in a shadow copy directory. Existing users continue using the original executable file until it terminates, while new users use the shadow copied executable file.
