Visual C++ Project Model

The Visual C++ project model exposes the functionality of the compiler, linker, project and item properties, and build tools. You can find the elements of the project model in the Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine namespace.

You can use the Visual C++ project model only inside Visual Studio. For information about how to get the project model, see How to: Manipulate Projects by Using the Visual C++ Project Model. For information about how to use the project model to get project properties, see Working with Visual C++ Project Properties.
