RegistrationException Class

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


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

public sealed class RegistrationException : SystemException

The RegistrationException type exposes the following members.

Public methodRegistrationException()Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class.
Public methodRegistrationException(String)Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class with a specified error message.
Public methodRegistrationException(String, Exception)Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class with a specified error message and nested exception.

Public propertyDataGets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyErrorInfoGets an array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects that describe registration errors.
Public propertyHelpLinkGets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected propertyHResultGets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyInnerExceptionGets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyMessageGets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySourceGets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyStackTraceGets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyTargetSiteGets the method that throws the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetBaseExceptionWhen overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetObjectDataSets the SerializationInfo object with the error information in RegistrationErrorInfo. (Overrides Exception.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext).)
Public methodGetTypeGets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

Protected eventSerializeObjectStateOccurs when an exception is serialized to create an exception state object that contains serialized data about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

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

    string applicationName = "Queued Component";			
    string typeLibraryName = null;
    RegistrationHelper helper = new RegistrationHelper(); 
    // Call the InstallAssembly method passing it the name of the assembly to 
    // 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 
    // the default type library name. The application name in the assembly metadata 
    // takes precedence over the application name you provide to InstallAssembly. 
    helper.InstallAssembly(@"C:..\..\QueuedComponent.dll", ref applicationName, ref typeLibraryName, InstallationFlags.CreateTargetApplication);
    Console.WriteLine("Registration succeeded: Type library {0} created.", typeLibraryName);

    // Create a RegistrationConfig object and set its attributes
    // Create a RegistrationHelper object, and call the InstallAssemblyFromConfig
    // method by passing the RegistrationConfiguration object to it as a 
    // reference object
    RegistrationConfig registrationConfiguration = new RegistrationConfig();
    registrationConfiguration.Application = "MyApp";
    registrationConfiguration.InstallationFlags = InstallationFlags.CreateTargetApplication;
    RegistrationHelper helperFromConfig = new RegistrationHelper();
    helperFromConfig.InstallAssemblyFromConfig(ref registrationConfiguration); 


catch(RegistrationException e)

    // Check whether the ErrorInfo property of the RegistrationException object is null. 
    // If there is no extended error information about 
    // methods related to multiple COM+ objects ErrorInfo will be null.
    if(e.ErrorInfo != null)
        // Gets an array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects describing registration errors
        RegistrationErrorInfo[] registrationErrorInfos = e.ErrorInfo;

        // Iterate through the array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects and disply the 
        // ErrorString for each object.

        foreach (RegistrationErrorInfo registrationErrorInfo in registrationErrorInfos)
