SetChecksum Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Enables setting the checksum in the header of an .exe file. Exposes the functionality of the /RELEASE linker option.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property SetChecksum() As Boolean
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get SetChecksum() As Boolean
Property Let SetChecksum( _
   ByVal NewValue As Boolean _
HRESULT __stdcall get_SetChecksum(
   /* [out, retval] */ VARIANT_BOOL* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_SetChecksum(
   /* [in] */ VARIANT_BOOL NewValue
public bool SetChecksum {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get SetChecksum() : Boolean
public function set SetChecksum(
   NewValue : Boolean


The following sample code modifies the SetChecksum 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
    prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
    cfgs = prj.Configurations
    cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
    tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
    tool.SetChecksum = True
  End Sub
End Module
