Actually I'm pretty sure so-called NTD is mostly an Internet Explorer
feature, mostly disjoint from the runtime itself. It's actually somewhat
annoying when you're trying to distribute a .NET executable that cannot be
run without full trust. For instance, if you have a Windows system with
Internet Explorer and .NET installed at your disposal, try just plain left
clicking on the link for mode13.exe in the following directory listing:


You will find that instead of the familiar "Do you want to download or open
this file?" dialog, it'll immediately try to execute it, and since mode13
uses unsafe code to speed up the drawing routines, it will fail with a
security exception. Beautiful, eh? :-)
