[Mono-list] replacement for mscoree.dll
Tue, 31 Dec 2002 09:30:12 +0100
The search order is:
1) The directory from which the application loaded.
2) The current directory.
3) The system directory. Use the GetSystemDirectory function to get the path
of this directory.
4) The 16-bit system directory. There is no function that obtains the path
of this directory, but it is searched. The name of this directory is System.
5) The Windows directory. Use the GetWindowsDirectory function to get the
path of this directory.
6) The directories that are listed in the PATH environment variable.
BTW, the DotGNU people are also looking into adding mscoree.dll support, so
it might be helpful to cooperate with them on this.
