ICLRRuntimeInfo::IsLoadable Method

Indicates whether the runtime associated with this interface can be loaded into the current process, taking into account other runtimes that might already be loaded into the process.


HRESULT IsLoadable(  
        [out, retval] BOOL *pbLoadable);  


[out] true if this runtime could be loaded into the current process; otherwise, false.

Return Value

This method returns the following specific HRESULTs as well as HRESULT errors that indicate method failure.

HRESULT Description
S_OK The method completed successfully.
E_POINTER pbLoadable is null.


If another runtime is already loaded into the process and the runtime associated with this interface can be loaded for in-process side-by-side execution, pbLoadable returns true. If the two runtimes cannot run side-by-side in-process, pbLoadable returns false. For example, the common language runtime (CLR) version 4 can run side-by-side in the same process with CLR version 2.0 or CLR version 1.1. However, CLR version 1.1 and CLR version 2.0 cannot run side-by-side in-process.

If no runtimes are loaded into the process, this method always returns true.
