Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
  Sub Test()
    Dim prj As VCProject
    Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection
    Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
    Dim tool As VCLinkerTool
    prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
    cfgs = prj.Configurations
    cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
    tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
    tool.OptimizeReferences = optRefType.optReferences
  End Sub
End Module
