AdditionalLibraryDirectories Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies one or more additional paths (configuration specific) to search for libraries. Exposes the functionality of the linker's /LIBPATH option and the librarian's /LIBPATH option.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property AdditionalLibraryDirectories() As String
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get AdditionalLibraryDirectories() As String
Property Let AdditionalLibraryDirectories( _
   ByVal NewValue As String _
HRESULT __stdcall get_AdditionalLibraryDirectories(
   /* [out, retval] */ BSTR* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_AdditionalLibraryDirectories(
   /* [in] */ BSTR NewValue
public string AdditionalLibraryDirectories {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get AdditionalLibraryDirectories() : String
public function set AdditionalLibraryDirectories(
   NewValue : String


Use semicolons to delimit a list of more than one path.


The following sample code modifies the linker's AdditionalLibraryDirectories 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 VCMidlTool
        Dim oldDeps As String
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCMidlTool")
        oldDeps = tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories
        tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories = oldDeps + "c:\dir1;d:\dir2"
    End Sub
End Module
