.NET Framework 1.1 and 2.0 Hosting Global Static Functions

This section describes the unmanaged global static functions that the hosting API uses.

With the exception of the _Cor* functions, these functions have been deprecated in the .NET Framework version 4.

_CorDllMain Function

Initializes the common language runtime (CLR), locates the managed entry point in the DLL assembly's CLR header, and begins execution.

_CorExeMain Function

Initializes the common language runtime (CLR), locates the managed entry point in the executable assembly's CLR header, and begins execution.

_CorExeMain2 Function

Executes the entry point in the specified memory-mapped code. This function is called by the operating system loader.

_CorImageUnloading Function

Notifies the loader when the managed module images are unloaded.

_CorValidateImage Function

Validates managed module images, and notifies the operating system loader after they have been loaded.

CallFunctionShim Function

Deprecated. Makes a call to the function that has the specified name and parameters in the specified library.

ClrCreateManagedInstance Function

Deprecated. Creates an instance of the specified managed type.

CoEEShutDownCOM Function

Unloads a COM assembly from the process. This function is deprecated in the .NET Framework version 4.

CoInitializeCor Function

CoInitializeCor is obsolete. To initialize the common language runtime (CLR), use either CorBindToRuntimeEx or CorBindToCurrentRuntime.

CoInitializeEE Function

Ensures that the CLR execution engine is loaded into a process. This function is deprecated in the .NET Framework 4. Use the ICLRRuntimeHost::Start method instead.

CorBindToCurrentRuntime Function

Deprecated. Loads the common language runtime (CLR) into a process by using version information stored in an XML file.

CorBindToRuntime Function

Deprecated. Enables unmanaged hosts to load the CLR into a process.

CorBindToRuntimeByCfg Function

Deprecated. Loads the CLR into a process by using version information that is read from an XML file.

CorBindToRuntimeEx Function

Deprecated. Enables unmanaged hosts to load the CLR into a process, and allows you to set flags to specify the behavior of the CLR.

CorBindToRuntimeHost Function

Deprecated. Enables hosts to load a specified version of the CLR into a process.

CorExitProcess Function

Deprecated. Shuts down the current unmanaged process.

CorLaunchApplication Function

Deprecated. Starts the application at the specified network path, using the specified manifests and other application data.

CorMarkThreadInThreadPool Function

Deprecated. Marks the currently executing thread-pool thread for the execution of managed code. Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, this function has no effect. It is not required, and can be removed from your code.

CoUninitializeCor Function

CoUninitializeCor is obsolete. The CLR cannot be unloaded from a process.

CoUninitializeEE Function

CoUninitializeEE is obsolete.

CreateDebuggingInterfaceFromVersion Function

Deprecated. Creates an ICorDebug object based on the specified version information.

CreateICeeFileGen Function

Deprecated. Creates an ICeeFileGen object.

DestroyICeeFileGen Function

Deprecated. Destroys an ICeeFileGen object.

FExecuteInAppDomainCallback Function Pointer

Deprecated. Points to a function that the CLR calls to execute managed code.

FLockClrVersionCallback Function Pointer

Deprecated. Points to a function that the CLR calls to notify the host that initialization has either started or completed.

GetCLRIdentityManager Function

Deprecated. Gets a pointer to an interface that allows the CLR to manage identities.

GetCORRequiredVersion Function

Deprecated. Gets the required CLR version number.

GetCORSystemDirectory Function

Deprecated. Returns the installation directory of the CLR that is loaded into the process.

GetCORVersion Function

Deprecated. Returns the version number of the CLR that is running in the current process.

GetFileVersion Function

Deprecated. Gets the CLR version information of the specified file, using the specified buffer.

GetRealProcAddress Function

Deprecated. Gets the address of the specified function that is exported from the latest installed version of the CLR.

GetRequestedRuntimeInfo Function

Deprecated. Gets version and directory information about the CLR requested by an application.

GetRequestedRuntimeVersion Function

Deprecated. Gets the version number of the CLR requested by the specified application. If that version is not installed, gets the most recent version that is installed before the requested version.

GetRequestedRuntimeVersionForCLSID Function

Deprecated. Gets the appropriate CLR version information for the class with the specified CLSID.

GetVersionFromProcess Function

Deprecated. Gets the version number of the CLR that is associated with the specified process handle.

LoadLibraryShim Function

Deprecated. Loads a specified version of a .NET Framework DLL.

LoadStringRC Function

Deprecated. Translates an HRESULT value into an error message by using the default culture of the current thread.

LoadStringRCEx Function

Deprecated. Translates an HRESULT value to an appropriate error message for the specified culture.

LockClrVersion Function

Deprecated. Allows the host to determine which version of the CLR will be used within the process before explicitly initializing the CLR.

LPOVERLAPPED_COMPLETION_ROUTINE Function Pointer

Deprecated. Points to a function that notifies the host when an overlapped (that is, asynchronous) I/O to a device has completed.

LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE Function Pointer

Deprecated. Points to a function that notifies the host that a thread has started to execute.

RunDll32ShimW Function

Deprecated. Executes the specified command.

WAITORTIMERCALLBACK Function Pointer

Deprecated. Points to a function that notifies the host that a wait handle has either been signaled or timed out.
