Assembly.LoadWithPartialName Method (String)
Loads an assembly from the application directory or from the global assembly cache using a partial name.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[ObsoleteAttribute("This method has been deprecated. Please use Assembly.Load() instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")] public static Assembly LoadWithPartialName( string partialName )
The display name of the assembly.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection.Assembly
The loaded assembly. If partialName is not found, this method returns null.
Applications that load assemblies with this method will be affected by upgrades of those assemblies. Therefore, do not use this method; redesign the application to use the Load(String) method overload or the LoadFrom(String) method overload.
This method first calls Load. If the assembly is not found, this method returns the assembly from the global assembly cache that has the same simple name, and the highest version number.
