SET GACUTIL="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bin\gacutil.exe"
SET REGASM="C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\regasm.exe"

%REGASM% $(TargetFileName) /tlb:MobizSalesApplication.tlb
%GACUTIL% /i $(TargetFileName)


Is there any use of adding these last 2 lines below while registering a COM object on build. Only reason I ask is when I am signed inas admin and omit these last 2 lines and build the application the tlb is created and along with the dll. Is it necessary...I am using .net framework 3.5 and 2010 vs studio

Although I get an error when adding them as admin and hitting build.


%REGASM% $(TargetFileName) /tlb:MobizSalesApplication.tlb
%GACUTIL% /i $(TargetFileName)

The first two lines only create two environment variables--they don't actually execute anything. The last two lines are actually attempting to register the type library. Without them, you're not really doing anything.

If you are getting an error when you run the last two lines, then something is wrong. Make sure you have the SDK installed on the machine which you are running the script on. Try locating those two files from within Explorer or a command prompt. If you cannot find the files, then that is why your script fails.

What do you mean by "updated"? The files will still get built. That's what Visual Studio does. The two lines you show are for installing the type library so that is accessible to COM.
