Property Let IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames( _
   ByVal NewValue As String _
HRESULT __stdcall get_IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames(

   /* [in] */ BSTR NewValue
public string IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames {get; set;}

The following sample code modifies the IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames linker 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 VCLinkerTool
        Dim oldNames As String
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
        tool.IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames = ""
        oldNames = tool.IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames
        tool.IgnoreDefaultLibraryNames = "some.dll;" + oldNames
    End Sub
