Return Value

Type: System.IO.IsolatedStorage.IsolatedStorageFile

An object corresponding to the isolated storage scope based on the calling code's application identity.

Exception Condition

The application identity of the caller could not be determined.


The granted permission set for the application domain could not be determined.


An isolated storage location cannot be initialized.


Sufficient isolated storage permissions have not been granted.

All assemblies associated with an application use the same isolated store when using this method.

GetMachineStoreForApplication is functionally equivalent to the following code:

isoFile = IsolatedStorageFile.GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.Application |
    IsolatedStorageScope.Machine, null);


for using isolated storage. Associated enumeration: AssemblyIsolationByUser


when invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as Type.InvokeMember. Associated enumeration: ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess
