These build tasks are for the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

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.
