/TLBID (Specify Resource ID for TypeLib)




A user-specified value for a linker-created type library. It overrides the default resource ID of 1.

When compiling a program that uses attributes, the linker will create a type library. The linker will assign a resource ID of 1 to the type library.

If this resource ID conflicts with one of your existing resources, you can specify another ID with /TLBID. The range of values that you can pass to id is 1 to 65535.

To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment

  1. Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Setting Visual C++ Project Properties.

  2. Click the Linker folder.

  3. Click the Embedded IDL property page.

  4. Modify the TypeLib Resource ID property.
