Public methodExecuteExtracts a type library from an Office customization assembly into a file, and embeds that file as an unmanaged resource into an assembly. (Overrides Task.Execute().)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)

Set all of the EmbedTypeLibrary properties and then call Execute to run this task.

The Microsoft Build Engine uses Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Office.BuildTasks to build and deploy Office solutions. However, you can create your own build system by using these classes and the MSBuild XML-based project files. For more information, see MSBuild Reference.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
