Assembly.GetEntryAssembly Assembly.GetEntryAssembly Assembly.GetEntryAssembly Assembly.GetEntryAssembly Method

Definition

Gets the process executable in the default application domain. In other application domains, this is the first executable that was executed by ExecuteAssembly(String).

public:
 static System::Reflection::Assembly ^ GetEntryAssembly();
public static System.Reflection.Assembly GetEntryAssembly ();
static member GetEntryAssembly : unit -> System.Reflection.Assembly
Public Shared Function GetEntryAssembly () As Assembly

Returns

The assembly that is the process executable in the default application domain, or the first executable that was executed by ExecuteAssembly(String). Can return null when called from unmanaged code.

Remarks

The GetEntryAssembly method can return null when a managed assembly has been loaded from an unmanaged application. For example, if an unmanaged application creates an instance of a COM component written in C#, a call to the GetEntryAssembly method from the C# component returns null, because the entry point for the process was unmanaged code rather than a managed assembly.
