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.
Assembly: Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0 (in Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Assemblies||Infrastructure. Gets or sets the assemblies to be registered with COM.|
|AssemblyListFile||Infrastructure. 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.|
|BuildEngine||Gets or sets the build engine interface that is available to tasks. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)|
|CreateCodeBase||Infrastructure. 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.|
|HelpKeywordPrefix||Gets or sets the prefix that is used to compose Help keywords from string resource names. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)|
|HostObject||Gets or sets a host object instance that is associated with the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)|
|Log||Infrastructure. Gets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelperExtension class containing task logging methods. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTaskExtension.)|
|TaskResources||Gets or sets culture-specific resources of the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)|
|TypeLibFiles||Infrastructure. Gets or sets the type library to generate from the specified assembly.|
|CreateObjRef||Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Execute||Infrastructure. Executes the RegisterAssembly task. (Overrides AppDomainIsolatedTask.Execute().)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetLifetimeService||Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|InitializeLifetimeService||When overridden in a derived class, gives tasks infinite lease time. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)|
|MemberwiseClone()||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone(Boolean)||Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|ReportEvent||Infrastructure. Callback method for reporting the type library export events.|
|ResolveRef||Infrastructure. Callback method for finding the type library for the specified assembly.|
|ToString||Returns 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
Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core Role not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core Role supported with SP1 or later; Itanium not supported)
The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
