6.20 Working with Partial Trust / Medium Trust

6.20.1 Evolution of Partial Trust Support Across Connector/Net Versions
6.20.2 Configuring Partial Trust with Connector/Net Library Installed in GAC
6.20.3 Configuring Partial Trust with Connector/Net Library Not Installed in GAC

.NET applications operate under a given trust level. Normal desktop applications operate under full trust, while web applications that are hosted in shared environments are normally run under the partial trust level (also known as medium trust). Some hosting providers host shared applications in their own app pools and allow the application to run under full trust, but this configuration is relatively rare. The Connector/Net support for partial trust has improved over time to simplify the configuration and deployment process for hosting providers.
