AppDomain.CreateDomain Method (String, Evidence, String, String, Boolean)
Creates a new application domain with the given name, using evidence, application base path, relative search path, and a parameter that specifies whether a shadow copy of an assembly is to be loaded into the application domain.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Public Shared Function CreateDomain ( friendlyName As String, securityInfo As Evidence, appBasePath As String, appRelativeSearchPath As String, shadowCopyFiles As Boolean ) As AppDomain
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.
The base directory that the assembly resolver uses to probe for assemblies. For more information, see BaseDirectory.
The path relative to the base directory where the assembly resolver should probe for private assemblies. For more information, see RelativeSearchPath.
If true, a shadow copy of an assembly is loaded into this application domain.
Return ValueType: System.AppDomain
The newly created application domain.
If securityInfo is not supplied, the evidence from the current application domain is used.
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.
' Set up the AppDomainSetup Dim setup As New AppDomainSetup() setup.ApplicationBase = "(some directory)" setup.ConfigurationFile = "(some file)" ' Set up the Evidence Dim baseEvidence As Evidence = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Evidence Dim evidence As New Evidence(baseEvidence) evidence.AddAssembly("(some assembly)") evidence.AddHost("(some host)") ' Create the AppDomain Dim newDomain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("newDomain", evidence, setup)
