Appdomain loading question

I'm trying to load an assembly into a temporary AppDomain rather than
my main AppDomain, so that it can be unloaded later on. However, it's
also loading into my main AppDomain at the same time.

My code is:
AppDomain a = AppDomain.Creat eDomain("TestDo main");
a.Load("AppDoma inTestAssembly" );

and in the Console window I get the following when the second line
executes:
'TestDomain': Loaded 'c:\visual studio
projects\appdom ain\appdomain\b in\debug\appdom aintestassembly .dll',
Symbols loaded.
'AppDomainTest. exe': Loaded 'c:\visual studio
projects\appdom ain\appdomain\b in\debug\appdom aintestassembly .dll',
Symbols loaded.

Which clearly means it's loading into both assemblies, yes? Is there a
reason why it's not just loading into TestDomain?

Cheers,

Andy D

To load an assembly into another AppDomain "cleanly" you must do so without
loading any Type data into the main AppDomain.

MVP Ambrose Little has a couple of articles he calls the "Perfect Service"
that explains a very neat way to do this in great detail:

Hi I have a scenario where I've created another AppDomain to dynamically load a DLL(s) into. In this newly loaded DLL I want to call a static method on a class.

Hello, I'm trying to load an assembly dynamically using an app domain. This is a proof-of-concept for a larger project, so please excuse the lame class names. TestLib is the dll where all the dynamic loading code will go. The assemblies being dynamically loaded do not contain any code. They are resource-only assemblies. I have succeeded in dynamically loading them within the same AppDomain as the main application (a Winforms EXE that...

Hello, I have read numerous post stating that the only way to unload an assembly (DLL in my case) is to create a separate AppDomain, load the assembly, then unload it by calling AppDomain.Unload. When trying to delete the DLL file I get an exception that access is denied. When trying to copy over the DLL file, I get an exception that it is being used by another process.

The following is a basic example of how this system works: C:\MyApp\Application1.exe C:\MyApp\MyMonitor.exe In SQL Server, we keep an EXE (Application1.exe) file stored as binary. I read this out of SQL Server into a byte array (through MyMonitor.exe) and then pass to a function for Version.

Hi there. There are various snippets on forums regarding issues with AppDomain.Unload and how it just doesnt work. Fortunately, I got it working with the base case, after much fiddling. Consider this 5 line program: AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain"); domain.CreateInstance("TempDLL", "TempDLL.Class1"); MessageBox.Show("try deleting file now"); //cant delete file AppDomain.Unload(domain);

when I use the AppDomain.UnLoad method (which calls the Thread.Abort method), I get the following error message AppDomain can not be unloaded because the thread 1378 can not be unwound out of it It seems to take time doing this. If I wait for about 30 seconds, it seems to get unloaded. Any ideas?

Hi all, I'm getting unexpected results when trying to preload assemblies into an AppDomain I'm creating. Upon creation of the AppDomain - I attach an AssemblyResolve to both my current AppDomain and the new AppDomain I create. I copy all the assemblies/dlls into a new directory and then try loading them all into the new AppDomain using the following: private void LoadAssembliesFromDirectory(AppDomain appDomain, string directory)
