The CreateVisualBasicManifestResourceName task determines the appropriate manifest resource name to assign to a given .resx or other resource file. The task provides a logical name to a resource file, and then attaches it to an output parameter as metadata.

In addition to the parameters listed above, this task inherits parameters from the TaskExtension class, which itself inherits from the Task class. For a list of these additional parameters and their descriptions, see TaskExtension base class.
