Provides methods that return a specific version of the common language runtime (CLR) based on its version number, list all installed CLRs, list all runtimes that are loaded in a specified process, discover the CLR version used to compile an assembly, exit a process with a clean runtime shutdown, and query legacy API binding.
|EnumerateInstalledRuntimes Method||Returns an enumeration that contains a valid ICLRRuntimeInfo interface pointer for each CLR version that is installed on a computer.|
|EnumerateLoadedRuntimes Method||Returns an enumeration that contains a valid ICLRRuntimeInfo interface pointer for each CLR that is loaded in a given process. This method supersedes GetVersionFromProcess.|
|ExitProcess Method||Attempts to shut down all loaded runtimes gracefully and then terminates the process. Supersedes the CorExitProcess function.|
|GetRuntime Method||Gets the ICLRRuntimeInfo interface that corresponds to a particular CLR version. This method supersedes the CorBindToRuntimeEx function used with the STARTUP_LOADER_SAFEMODE flag.|
|GetVersionFromFile Method||Gets the assembly's original .NET Framework compilation version (stored in the metadata), given its file path. This method supersedes GetFileVersion.|
|QueryLegacyV2RuntimeBinding Method||Returns an interface that represents a runtime to which legacy activation policy has been bound, for example by using the |
|RequestRuntimeLoadedNotification Method||Guarantees a callback to the specified function pointer when a CLR version is first loaded, but not yet started. This method supersedes LockClrVersion|
The only way to get an instance of this interface is by calling the CLRCreateInstance function as follows:
ICLRMetaHost *pMetaHost = NULL; HRESULT hr = CLRCreateInstance(CLSID_CLRMetaHost, IID_ICLRMetaHost, (LPVOID*)&pMetaHost);
