  • To use NETNew, you first need to load .NET/Link using Needs["NETLink`"].
  • The type argument can be either a NETType expression that was returned from LoadNETType, or a string giving the type's name. The assembly in which the type resides must have been loaded with LoadNETAssembly.
  • The assembly argument can be an assembly name, a NETAssembly expression returned from LoadNETAssembly, or a path or URL to an assembly file. The assembly will be loaded if necessary.
