Defines the different types of assembly version compatibility. This feature is not available in version 1.0 of the .NET Framework.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
|The assembly cannot execute with other versions if they are executing in the same application domain.|
|The assembly cannot execute with other versions if they are executing on the same machine.|
|The assembly cannot execute with other versions if they are executing in the same process.|
AssemblyVersionCompatibility defines the compatibility of an assembly with other versions of the same assembly, indicating if it cannot execute side-by-side with other versions (for example, due to conflicts over a device driver).
If no compatibility is specified, an assembly is side-by-side compatible in all scopes.
An assembly cannot be more specific with regard to exactly which previous versions it is not side-by-side compatible with. Therefore, if the AssemblyVersionCompatibility is specified, it means the assembly is non side-by-side with all know versions. If not specified, it means it is side-by-side with all known versions.
