Property Value

A value that represents information about the assembly's compatibility with other assemblies.

VersionCompatibility information indicates, for example, that the assembly cannot execute side-by-side with other versions due to conflicts over a device driver.

Currently, VersionCompatibility always returns AssemblyVersionCompatibility.SameMachine, and is not used by the loader. This property is reserved for a future feature.
