Dll. dll can have multiple versions present on any given machine. NET applications target specific versions of the CLR. 0 CLR. NET world. dll is to find out which version of the CLR the assembly is targeting by looking at the CLR header in the PE image file. dll looks at the MajorRuntimeVersion and MinorRuntimeVersion of the header and loads the appropriate version of the CLR. EXE) is launched. NET. NET library, as far as the loader is concerned, the only difference is that instead of Application Domains 33 the PE image importing the _CorExeMain imported function, it imports the _CorDllMain function.

Being able to uniquely identify and describe an assembly is important to ensure that loading and binding of assemblies is performed without conflict and dependencies on other configurable data. By making an assembly self contained, it takes great strides toward eliminating the problem of DLL hell. NET applications. Framework assemblies are good examples of shared assemblies. NET applications, it is critical that strong name guarantees are placed on the assembly. Shared assemblies must fully define versioning to allow the CLR to bind to the right version of the assembly.

INTRODUCTION TO THE TOOLS Figure 1-2 Sample View when profiling the CLR Profiler The data collected is output to a log file that is by default located in %windir%\Temp. log where is the process identifier of the process being profiled. The CLR Profiler can also be started and controlled via the command line. Running the CLR Profiler using the /? switch opens a window with all the available options. exe where the –o switch specifies the log filename and the –p switch specifies the executable to be profiled.
