Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies whether to optimize code in favor of Windows .exe execution. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GA option.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property OptimizeForWindowsApplication() As Boolean
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get OptimizeForWindowsApplication() As Boolean
Property Let OptimizeForWindowsApplication( _
   ByVal NewValue As Boolean _
HRESULT __stdcall get_OptimizeForWindowsApplication(
   /* [out, retval] */ VARIANT_BOOL* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_OptimizeForWindowsApplication(
   /* [in] */ VARIANT_BOOL NewValue
public bool OptimizeForWindowsApplication {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get OptimizeForWindowsApplication() : Boolean
public function set OptimizeForWindowsApplication(
   NewValue : Boolean


The following sample code modifies the OptimizeForWindowsApplication property in the development environment:

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
        Dim tool As VCCLCompilerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCCLCompilerTool")
        tool.OptimizeForWindowsApplication = True
    End Sub
End Module
