Assembly.LoadWithPartialName Method (String, Evidence)

NOTE: This method is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is Load.

Loads an assembly from the application directory or from the global assembly cache using a partial name. The assembly is loaded into the domain of the caller using the supplied evidence.

Namespace: System.Reflection
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static function LoadWithPartialName (
	partialName : String, 
	securityEvidence : Evidence
) : Assembly

Parameters

partialName

The display name of the assembly.

securityEvidence

Evidence for loading the assembly.

Return Value

The loaded assembly. If partialName is not found, this method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Exception typeCondition

FileLoadException

An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different sets of evidence.

NullReferenceException

The partialName parameter is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Evidence is the set of information that constitutes input to security policy decisions, such as what permissions can be granted to code.

Applications that load assemblies with this method will be affected by upgrades of those assemblies. Therefore, do not use this method; redesign the application to use the Load method or the LoadFrom method.

This method first calls Load. If the assembly is not found, this method returns the assembly from the global assembly cache that has the same simple name, and the highest version number.
