ICorRuntimeHost::Start Method

Starts the common language runtime (CLR).

Syntax

HRESULT Start ();  

Return Value

HRESULT Description
S_OK The operation was successful.
S_FALSE The operation failed to complete.
E_FAIL An unknown, catastrophic failure occurred. If a method returns E_FAIL, the CLR is no longer usable in the process. Subsequent calls to any hosting APIs return HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE.
HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE The CLR has not been loaded into a process, or the CLR is in a state in which it cannot run managed code or process the call successfully.

Remarks

It is typically not necessary to call the Start method, because the CLR starts automatically upon the first request to run managed code.
