if you want to create an assembly dynamically in the current domain, this is a method to perform this:

using System;

using System.Reflection;

using System.Reflection.Emit;

namespace yourProjectname


    class Program


        static void Main(string[] args)




                //Define an assembly name

                AssemblyName oAssemblyName = new AssemblyName("myAssembly");

                //Build the assembly

                AssemblyBuilder oAssBuilder =

                    AppDomain.CurrentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(oAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess.Save);

                //Save the assembly as ILOnly working on I386 32 bit processor

                //An argument exception will be thrown if you precise the path

                // C:\...


                Console.WriteLine("The assembly is dynamically created in the current domain");



            catch (AppDomainUnloadedException caught)







It is also possible to create assemblies in a new domain you just replace currentDomain by createDomain
