NOASSEMBLY

  
## Remarks  
 The /NOASSEMBLY option tells the linker to create an image for the current output file without a .NET Framework assembly. An MSIL output file without an assembly manifest is called a module.  
  
 By default, an assembly is created. You can also use the [/LN (Create MSIL Module)](../Topic/-LN%20\(Create%20MSIL%20Module\).md) compiler option to create a module.  
  
 Other linker options that affect assembly generation are:  
  
-   [/ASSEMBLYDEBUG](../Topic/-ASSEMBLYDEBUG%20\(Add%20DebuggableAttribute\).md)  
  
-   [/ASSEMBLYLINKRESOURCE](../Topic/-ASSEMBLYLINKRESOURCE%20\(Link%20to%20.NET%20Framework%20Resource\).md)  
  
-   [/ASSEMBLYMODULE](../Topic/-ASSEMBLYMODULE%20\(Add%20a%20MSIL%20Module%20to%20the%20Assembly\).md)  
  
-   [/ASSEMBLYRESOURCE](../Topic/-ASSEMBLYRESOURCE%20\(Embed%20a%20Managed%20Resource\).md)  
  
-   [/DELAYSIGN](../Topic/-DELAYSIGN%20\(Partially%20Sign%20an%20Assembly\).md)  
  
-   [/KEYFILE](../Topic/-KEYFILE%20\(Specify%20Key%20or%20Key%20Pair%20to%20Sign%20an%20Assembly\).md)  
  
-   [/KEYCONTAINER](../Topic/-KEYCONTAINER%20\(Specify%20a%20Key%20Container%20to%20Sign%20an%20Assembly\).md)
