AppDomain::AppendPrivatePath Method

Note: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is PrivateBinPath.

Appends the specified directory name to the private path list.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute(L"AppDomain.AppendPrivatePath has been deprecated. Please investigate the use of AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath instead.")]
virtual void AppendPrivatePath(
	String^ path
) sealed


Type: System::String
The name of the directory to be appended to the private path.




The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

The use of this property is not recommended, because it might change the probing path for assemblies after they have already been loaded. Use the AppDomainSetup::PrivateBinPath property instead.

The private path, or relative search path, is the path relative to the base directory where the assembly resolver probes for private assemblies.
