ClrCreateManagedInstance Function

Creates an instance of the specified managed type.

This function has been deprecated in the .NET Framework 4. Use COM activation to create an instance of the managed type, or use hosting (see CLR Hosting Interfaces Added in the .NET Framework 4 and 4.5).


STDAPI ClrCreateManagedInstance (  
    [in]  LPCWSTR  pTypeName,   
    [in]  REFIID   riid,   
    [out] void     **ppObject  


[in] A pointer to the name of the instance type being requested.

[in] The IID of the instance type being requested.

[out] A pointer to a pointer to an instance of the managed type that was requested by the caller.


The common language runtime should already be loaded into a process. For example, it can be loaded by using a call to the CorBindToRuntimeEx function before the ClrCreateManagedInstance function is called. If the runtime is not loaded, ClrCreateManagedInstance first tries to load v1.0.3705 of the runtime. If that fails, it attempts to load the latest version of the runtime.
