RegisterAssembly Class

 

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Implements the RegisterAssembly task. Use the RegisterAssembly element in your project file to create and execute this task. For usage and parameter information, see RegisterAssembly Task.

MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Build.Tasks
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks.Core (in Microsoft.Build.Tasks.Core.dll)

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetLifetimeService()

(Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitializeLifetimeService()

When overridden in a derived class, gives tasks infinite lease time.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

(Inherited from Object.)

Framework64/<version>/RegisterAssemblyTask cannot resolve a library of COM objects registered as 32-bit components. Framework/<version>/RegisterAssemblyTask cannot resolve a library of COM objects registered as 64-bit components.

For example, if you register a library of COM objects called ClassLibrary1 as 32-bit components on a 64-bit machine, run Visual Studio, and change the target to x64, the build fails with the following error:

ClassLibrary1.dll is not a valid assembly
