Property Value

Type: System.String

A string representing the path name.

AdditionalLibraryDirectories exposes the functionality of the linker's /LIBPATH (Additional Libpath) option and the librarian's Managing a Library option.

An example of a valid path name is "c:\additionaldirs." Use semicolons to delimit a list of more than one path.

The following example modifies the linker's AdditionalLibraryDirectories property in the integrated development environment (IDE):
