The friendly name of the domain. This friendly name can be displayed in user interfaces to identify the domain. For more information, see FriendlyName.

Evidence that establishes the identity of the code that runs in the application domain. Pass null to use the evidence of the current application domain.

info
Type: System.AppDomainSetup

An object that contains application domain initialization information.

Return Value

Type: System.AppDomain

The newly created application domain.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

friendlyName is null.

If info is not supplied, this method overload uses the AppDomainSetup information from the default application domain.

If securityInfo is not supplied, the evidence from the current application domain is used.

System_CAPS_importantImportant

Do not use this method overload to create sandboxed application domains. Beginning with the .NET Framework 4, the evidence that is supplied for securityInfo no longer affects the grant set of the application domain. Use the CreateDomain(String, Evidence, AppDomainSetup, PermissionSet, StrongName[]) method overload to create sandboxed application domains.

The following sample demonstrates, in general, how to create a domain using one of the CreateDomain overloads.
