TLBID:id

  
## Remarks  
 where:  
  
 `id`  
 A user-specified value for a linker-created type library. It overrides the default resource ID of 1.  
  
## Remarks  
 When compiling a program that uses attributes, the linker will create a type library. The linker will assign a resource ID of 1 to the type library.  
  
 If this resource ID conflicts with one of your existing resources, you can specify another ID with /TLBID. The range of values that you can pass to `id` is 1 to 65535.
