Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.dll)

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if cross-module optimizations are enabled; otherwise, false.

WholeProgramOptimization exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL (Whole Program Optimization) option.

It is better to set the VCConfiguration object's WholeProgramOptimization property rather than to set the compiler property of the same name and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property.

The compiler's version of this property and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property are not available via the property pages.
