' Visual C++ project loaded before running this example.
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim vcar As VCAssemblyReference
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        vcar = prj.VCReferences.item(1) 
        MsgBox("Public key token: " & vcar.PublicKeyToken)
    End Sub
End Module
