Parameters

path

The fully qualified path to where dynamic assemblies are stored.

Exception typeCondition

AppDomainUnloadedException

Operations are attempted on an unloaded application domain.

This method sets the DynamicBase property of the internal AppDomainSetup associated with this instance.
