Assembly: System.Configuration (in system.configuration.dll)
The friendly name of the provider.
A collection of the name/value pairs representing the provider-specific attributes specified in the configuration for this provider.
The name of the provider is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
The name of the provider has a length of zero.
An attempt is made to call Initialize on a provider after the provider has already been initialized.
The base class implementation internally tracks the number of times the provider's Initialize method has been called. If a provider is initialized more than once, an InvalidOperationException is thrown stating that the provider is already initialized.
Because most feature providers call Initialize prior to performing provider-specific initialization, this method is a central location for preventing double initialization.
