IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForAssembly Method ()


Obtains user-scoped isolated storage corresponding to the calling code's assembly identity.

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

public static IsolatedStorageFile GetUserStoreForAssembly()

Return Value

Type: System.IO.IsolatedStorage.IsolatedStorageFile

An object corresponding to the isolated storage scope based on the calling code's assembly identity.

Exception Condition

Sufficient isolated storage permissions have not been granted.


An isolated storage location cannot be initialized.


The permissions for the calling assembly cannot be determined.

The same assembly within different applications always uses the same isolated store when using this method.

GetUserStoreForAssembly is functionally equivalent to the following code:

isoFile = IsolatedStorageFile.GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.Assembly |
    IsolatedStorageScope.User, null, null);

Different assemblies running within the same application domain always have distinct isolated stores.
