The following example modifies the VCConfiguration object's OutputDirectory property in the integrated development environment (IDE):

[Visual Basic]

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine  
Imports EnvDTE  
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine  

Public Module Module1  
    Sub Test()  
        Dim prj As VCProject  
        Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection  
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration  
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object  
        cfgs = prj.Configurations  
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)  
        cfg.OutputDirectory = "    est"  
    End Sub  
End Module  


Wizards set this property. Do not use the project directory for the project outputs.
