The following example modifies the GenerateMapFile property in the integrated development environment (IDE):

' 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 VCLinkerTool
    prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
    cfgs = prj.Configurations
    cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
    tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
    tool.GenerateMapFile = True
  End Sub
