Property Value

Type: System::String^

The location of the loaded file that contains the manifest. If the loaded file was shadow-copied, the location is that of the file after being shadow-copied. If the assembly is loaded from a byte array, such as when using the Load(array<Byte>^) method overload, the value returned is an empty string ("").

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Location property gets the path or Universal Naming Convention (UNC) location of the loaded file that contains the manifest.
