Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


The LoaderOptimizationAttribute can only be set on the main method for an executable application and is ignored on all other methods.

The LoaderOptimizationAttribute attribute is specified with a LoaderOptimization enumeration value, which tells the loader what type of application to optimize for: SingleDomain, MultiDomain, or MultiDomainHost.

This attribute is only a hint to the loader and does not affect program behavior.
