Vbc Class

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

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