UnregisterAssembly Class

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

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

Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0 (in Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0.dll)

public class UnregisterAssembly : AppDomainIsolatedTaskExtension

The UnregisterAssembly type exposes the following members.

Public methodUnregisterAssemblyInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the UnregisterAssembly class.

Public propertyAssembliesInfrastructure. Gets or sets the assemblies to be unregistered.
Public propertyAssemblyListFileInfrastructure. Gets or sets information about the state between the RegisterAssembly task and the UnregisterAssembly task that the UnregisterAssembly task uses to avoid unregistering an assembly that failed to register in the RegisterAssembly task.
Public propertyBuildEngineGets or sets the build engine interface that is available to tasks. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Protected propertyHelpKeywordPrefixGets or sets the prefix that is used to compose Help keywords from string resource names. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyHostObjectGets or sets a host object instance that is associated with the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyLogInfrastructure. Gets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelperExtension class containing task logging methods. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTaskExtension.)
Protected propertyTaskResourcesGets or sets culture-specific resources of the derived Task. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Public propertyTypeLibFilesInfrastructure. Gets or sets a Boolean value that specifies whether to unregister the specified type library from the specified assembly.

Public methodCreateObjRefCreates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExecuteInfrastructure. Executes the UnregisterAssembly task. (Overrides AppDomainIsolatedTask.Execute().)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetLifetimeServiceRetrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeLifetimeServiceWhen overridden in a derived class, gives tasks infinite lease time. (Inherited from AppDomainIsolatedTask.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone()Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone(Boolean)Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4, 3.5, 3.0, 2.0

Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows XP SP2 x64 Edition, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2

The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
