/DELAYLOAD (Delay Load Import)
For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.
The name of a DLL that you want to delay load.
The /DELAYLOAD option causes the DLL that's specified by
dllname to be loaded only on the first call by the program to a function in that DLL. For more information, see Linker Support for Delay-Loaded DLLs. You can use this option as many times as necessary to specify as many DLLs as you choose. You must use Delayimp.lib when you link your program, or you can implement your own delay-load helper function.
The /DELAY option specifies binding and loading options for each delay-loaded DLL.
Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Working with Project Properties.
In the Linker folder, select the Input property page.
Modify the Delay Loaded DLLs property.
