RegisterAssembly Class

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Implements the RegisterAssembly task. Use the RegisterAssembly element in your project file to create and execute this task. For usage and parameter information, see RegisterAssembly Task.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0 (in Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0.dll)

public class RegisterAssembly : AppDomainIsolatedTaskExtension, 
	ITypeLibExporterNotifySink

The RegisterAssembly type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodRegisterAssemblyInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the RegisterAssembly class.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyAssembliesInfrastructure. Gets or sets the assemblies to be registered with COM.
Public propertyAssemblyListFileInfrastructure. Gets or sets information about the state between the RegisterAssembly task and the UnregisterAssembly task. This prevents the UnregisterAssembly task from attempting to unregister an assembly that failed to register in the RegisterAssembly task.
Public propertyBuildEngineGets or sets the build engine interface that is available to tasks. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyCreateCodeBaseInfrastructure. Gets or sets a Boolean value that specifies whether the task creates a codebase entry in the registry, which specifies the file path for an assembly that is not installed in the global assembly cache.
Protected propertyHelpKeywordPrefixGets or sets the prefix that is used to compose Help keywords from string resource names. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyHostObjectGets or sets a host object instance that is associated with the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyLogInfrastructure. Gets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelperExtension class containing task logging methods. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTaskExtension.)
Protected propertyTaskResourcesGets or sets culture-specific resources of the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyTypeLibFilesInfrastructure. Gets or sets the type library to generate from the specified assembly.

  NameDescription
Public methodCreateObjRefCreates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExecuteInfrastructure. Executes the RegisterAssembly task. (Overrides AppDomainIsolatedTask.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 the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetLifetimeServiceRetrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeLifetimeServiceWhen overridden in a derived class, gives tasks infinite lease time. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone()Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone(Boolean)Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodReportEventInfrastructure. Callback method for reporting the type library export events.
Public methodResolveRefInfrastructure. Callback method for finding the type library for the specified assembly.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Framework64/<version>/RegisterAssemblyTask cannot resolve a library of COM objects registered as 32-bit components. Framework/<version>/RegisterAssemblyTask cannot resolve a library of COM objects registered as 64-bit components.

For example, if you register a library of COM objects called ClassLibrary1 as 32-bit components on a 64-bit machine, run Visual Studio, and change the target to x64, the build fails with the following error:

ClassLibrary1.dll is not a valid assembly

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.5.2, 4.5.1, 4.5, 4, 3.5, 3.0, 2.0
