Assemblies in a domain - VB..NET
The following VB.NET program retrieves the assemblies that have been loaded into the execution context of this application domain. Assembly represents a reusable, versionable, and self-describing building block of a Common Language Runtime application.
The System.Reflection namespace contains types that retrieve information about assemblies, modules, members, parameters, and other entities in managed code by examining their metadata. We use the AppDomain.GetAssemblies method to retrieve an array of Assembly objects representing the assemblies currently loaded into an application domain.
Use the Assembly class to load assemblies, to explore the metadata and constituent parts of assemblies, to discover the types contained in assemblies, and to create instances of those types.
