The CreatePartialActivationContext method calls an internal constructor to create a new activation context. The implementation of the ActivationContext class in the .NET Framework version 2.0 is designed for applications that are neither fully installed in a store nor fully contained in a folder. This method provides backward compatibility for later releases in which public constructors provide full activation contexts.
