Hi,

Can someone share a working command line command to build

the Outlook type library and sign it with a strong name from a key file?

Thanks

What version of Outlook are you using?  

If you are using Outlook XP, there are Primary Interoperability Assemblies (PIA) that you can download from Micro$oft.  PIAs are the best way to go when working with COM interoperability (when you can find them).  There should also be PIAs for 2003, but since I don't have that version I can't verify that they even exist.

Well, I am hoping for a simple script (batch file) that can find out the location of the type library, perhaps because it is a COM object and should be registered. Besides, the GUID is always the same, and so I am hoping it is a straightfoward task.

I'll look for a PIA though, but CM doesn't like to store binaries in source control, which is why I need a way to dynamically generate this file on demand.

Any other help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, and I am trying to (a) remember the syntax, (b) find a different way, or (c) give up 'cause I just not quite sure.  I was using SourceSafe, which stores binaries, so I haven't done much command line stuff, so I am a little rusty.

I don't think that I can help you since I don't have Outlook at home, and I don't have a job quite yet.
