      Hi guys,

      I am trying to create an AppDomain in a Powershell script. I implemented the exact same in C# and it seems to be working fine. However, the Powershell version always fails with an exception. The script code is:

      function Execute($arguments)
          Write-Host "Arguments: " $arguments[0] $arguments[1] $arguments[2]
      function Main
          $appDomain = $null
              $appDomainSetup = New-Object -TypeName System.AppDomainSetup
              $appDomainSetup.AppDomainInitializer = ${function:Execute}
              $appDomainSetup.AppDomainInitializerArguments = @("Test1", "Test2", "Test3")
              $appDomain = [AppDomain]::CreateDomain("TestDomain", $null, $appDomainSetup)
              If ($appDomain -ne $null)

      And the exception is: Unhandled Exception: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt. at System.AppDomain.nCreateDomain(String friendlyName, AppDomainSetup setup, Evidence providedSecurityInfo, Evidence creatorsSecurityInfo, IntPtr parentSecur ityDescriptor) …

      We figured out that Powershell is creating a dynamic method from the delegate in AppDomainSetup. But I don’t know to change this behavior or any other way how I can use AppDomainInitializer in Powershell?

      Could you just use embedded C#?
