Namespace:   System.EnterpriseServices
Assembly:  System.EnterpriseServices (in System.EnterpriseServices.dll)


Public NotInheritable Class RegistrationException
	Inherits SystemException


Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class.


Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class with a specified error message.

System_CAPS_pubmethodRegistrationException(String, Exception)

Initializes a new instance of the RegistrationException class with a specified error message and nested exception.


Gets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets an array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects that describe registration errors.


Gets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets the Exception instance that caused the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets a message that describes the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets a string representation of the immediate frames on the call stack.(Inherited from Exception.)


Gets the method that throws the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions.(Inherited from Exception.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Gets the runtime type of the current instance.(Inherited from Exception.)


Creates and returns a string representation of the current exception.(Inherited from Exception.)

The following code example contains a catch block that shows how to handle a registration exception.

    Dim applicationName As String = "Queued Component"
    Dim typeLibraryName As String = Nothing
    Dim helper As New RegistrationHelper

    ' Call the InstallAssembly method passing it the name of the assembly to 
    ' install as a COM+ application, the COM+ application name, and 
    ' the name of the type library file.
    ' Setting the application name and the type library to NULL (nothing in Visual Basic .NET
    ' allows you to use the COM+ application name that is given in the assembly and 
    ' the default type library name. The application name in the assembly metadata 
    ' takes precedence over the application name you provide to InstallAssembly. 
    helper.InstallAssembly("C:..\..\QueuedComponent.dll", applicationName, typeLibraryName, InstallationFlags.CreateTargetApplication)
    MsgBox("Registration succeeded: Type library " & typeLibraryName & " created.")

    ' Create a RegistrationConfig object and set its attributes
    ' Create a RegistrationHelper object, and call the InstallAssemblyFromConfig
    ' method by passing the RegistrationConfiguration object to it as a 
    ' reference object
    Dim registrationConfiguration As New RegistrationConfig()
    registrationConfiguration.AssemblyFile = "C:..\..\QueuedComponent.dll"
    registrationConfiguration.Application = "MyApp"
    registrationConfiguration.InstallationFlags = InstallationFlags.CreateTargetApplication
    Dim helperFromConfig As New RegistrationHelper()

Catch e As RegistrationException

    ' Check whether the ErrorInfo property of the RegistrationException object is null. 
    ' If there is no extended error information about 
    ' methods related to multiple COM+ objects ErrorInfo will be null.
    If Not (e.ErrorInfo Is Nothing) Then
        ' Gets an array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects describing registration errors
        Dim registrationErrorInfos As RegistrationErrorInfo() = e.ErrorInfo

        ' Iterate through the array of RegistrationErrorInfo objects and disply the 
        ' ErrorString for each object.
        Dim registrationErrorInfo As RegistrationErrorInfo
        For Each registrationErrorInfo In registrationErrorInfos
        Next registrationErrorInfo
    End If
End Try
