Can two applications, one using private assembly and the other using the shared assembly be stated as side-by-side executables?

Can two applications, one using private assembly and the other using the shared assembly be stated as side-by-side executables?

No, it is not possible to run two applications, one using private assembly and the other using the shared assembly side to side.

The reason for this is that while side-by-side execution enables the running of multiple versions of an application or component and CLR on the same computer at the same time, versioning is applicable only to shared assemblies and not to private assemblies. Hence, it is not possible to run two applications, one using private assembly and the other using the shared assembly be stated as side-by-side executables.
