Remarks

By default, a shadow copy includes all assemblies found through probing. The SetShadowCopyPath method restricts the shadow copy to the assemblies in the directories specified by path.

The SetShadowCopyPath method does not specify additional directories to be searched for assemblies. Assemblies to be shadow-copied must already be located in the search path, for example under BaseDirectory. The SetShadowCopyPath method specifies which search paths are eligible to be shadow-copied.

This method sets the ShadowCopyDirectories property of the internal AppDomainSetup associated with this instance.

For more information on shadow copying, see Shadow Copying Assemblies.
