Starts the common language runtime (CLR).
HRESULT Start ();
|S_OK||The operation was successful.|
|S_FALSE||The operation failed to complete.|
|E_FAIL||An unknown, catastrophic failure occurred. If a method returns E_FAIL, the CLR is no longer usable in the process. Subsequent calls to any hosting APIs return HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE.|
|HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE||The CLR has not been loaded into a process, or the CLR is in a state in which it cannot run managed code or process the call successfully.|
It is typically not necessary to call the
Start method, because the CLR starts automatically upon the first request to run managed code.
