What is the best way to check if a dotnet assembly can be used on client side?

I'm using the System.IO.File assembly to move a file on client side.
Of course this is not possible in combination with the new NAV2013 WebClient.
So I want to check if the assembly can be used.

I thought I could use the CANLOADTYPE for this but is seems not to work:
IOFile.Exists('');  // <- Says: The operation cannot complete because it uses a feature that is not supported (.NET Framework Interoperability.)
Till now I have placed a command in a codeunit.run to see if it succeeds.
This is working but it's not ideal because it can't be used in a transaction.
Is there a better way to do this?

    To move the file to client you have building commands directly in C/AL, why to use dotnet?

    You mentioned NAV2013: if you're on NAV2013, then there's a function called CanRunDotNetOnClient in the File Management codeunit.
