Exceptions

The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ClearPrivatePath method to remove all entries from the list of private paths to search when assemblies are loaded.

This method is now obsolete, and should not be used for new development.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Security::Policy;

//for evidence Object
int main()
{
   
   //Create evidence for new appdomain.
   Evidence^ adevidence = AppDomain::CurrentDomain->Evidence;
   
   //Create the new application domain.
   AppDomain^ domain = AppDomain::CreateDomain( "MyDomain", adevidence );
   
   //Display the current relative search path.
   Console::WriteLine( "Relative search path is: {0}", domain->RelativeSearchPath );
   
   //Append the relative path.
   String^ Newpath = "www.code.microsoft.com";
   domain->AppendPrivatePath( Newpath );
   
   //Display the new relative search path.
   Console::WriteLine( "Relative search path is: {0}", domain->RelativeSearchPath );
   
   //Clear the private search path.
   domain->ClearPrivatePath();
   
   //Display the new relative search path.
   Console::WriteLine( "Relative search path is now: {0}", domain->RelativeSearchPath );
   AppDomain::Unload( domain );
}

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Security.Policy;

class ADAppendPrivatePath
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        //Create evidence for new appdomain.
        Evidence adevidence = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Evidence;

        //Create the new application domain.
        AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", adevidence);

        //Display the current relative search path.
        Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

        //Append the relative path.
        String Newpath = "www.code.microsoft.com";
        domain.AppendPrivatePath(Newpath);

        //Display the new relative search path.
        Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

        //Clear the private search path.
        domain.ClearPrivatePath();

        //Display the new relative search path.
        Console.WriteLine("Relative search path is now: " + domain.RelativeSearchPath);

        AppDomain.Unload(domain);	
    }

Remarks

The private path is a path relative to the base directory that the common language runtime searches to locate private assemblies.
