Command Table Configuration (.Ctc) Files

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

A command table configuration (.ctc) file is a text file that describes the command set for a VSPackage. A .ctc file is compiled into a native satellite DLL, managed satellite DLL, or managed VSPackage.

The binary command table output file, identified by its .cto extension, is a resource that implements the command set described by its corresponding .ctc file.
