[This is preliminary documentation and subject to change.]
Registers an assembly for use from COM clients.
Refer to the Regasm documentation for more information on the regasm tool.
|assembly||file||The name of the file to register. This is provided as an alternate to using the task's fileset.||False|
|codebase||bool||Set the code base registry setting.||False|
|exporttypelib||bool|| Export a typelib and register it. The typelib will have the same name as the source assembly unless the
|regfile||file||Registry file to export to instead of entering the types directly into the registry. If a fileset is used then the entries are all collated into this file.||False|
|registered||bool||Only refer to already registered type libraries.||False|
|typelib||file||Export the assembly to the specified type library and register it. This attribute is ignored when a fileset is specified.||False|
|unregister||bool||Unregister the assembly. The default is false.||False|
|failonerror||bool||Determines if task failure stops the build, or is just reported. The default is true.||False|
|if||bool||If true then the task will be executed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true.||False|
|timeout||int||The maximum amount of time the application is allowed to execute, expressed in milliseconds. Defaults to no time-out.||False|
|unless||bool|| Opposite of
|verbose||bool||Determines whether the task should report detailed build log messages. The default is false.||False|
|exename||string||The name of the executable that should be used to launch the external program.||False|
|managed||ManagedExecution||Specifies whether the external program should be treated as a managed application, possibly forcing it to be executed under the currently targeted version of the CLR.||False|
|useruntimeengine||bool||Deprecated. Specifies whether the external program is a managed application which should be executed using a runtime engine, if configured. The default is false.||False|
Represents a command-line argument.
When passed to an external application, the argument will be quoted when appropriate. This does not apply to the
line parameter, which is always passed as is.
|dir||directory||The value for a directory-based command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute path of the directory.||False|
|file||file||The name of a file as a single command-line argument; will be replaced with the absolute filename of the file.||False|
|if||bool||Indicates if the argument should be passed to the external program. If true then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is true.||False|
|line||string||List of command-line arguments; will be passed to the executable as is.||False|
|path||<path>|| The value for a PATH-like command-line argument; you can use ||False|
|unless||bool||Indicates if the argument should not be passed to the external program. If false then the argument will be passed; otherwise, skipped. The default is false.||False|
|value||string||A single command-line argument; can contain space characters.||False|
A single command-line argument containing a space character.
<arg value="-l -a" />
Two separate command-line arguments.
<arg line="-l -a" />
A single command-line argument with the value
\dir;\dir2;\dir3 on DOS-based systems and
/dir:/dir2:/dir3 on Unix-like systems.
<arg path="/dir;/dir2:\dir3" />
Register a single assembly.
<regasm assembly="myAssembly.dll" />
Register an assembly while exporting a typelibrary.
<regasm assembly="myAssembly.dll" typelib="myAssembly.tlb" />
Register a set of assemblies at once.
<regasm unregister="false" codebase="true"> <fileset> <include name="**/*.dll" /> <exclude name="notanassembly.dll" /> </fileset> </regasm>
