IMetaDataImport interface (rometadataapi.h)

Provides methods for importing and manipulating existing metadata from a portable executable (PE) file or other source, such as a type library or a stand-alone, run-time metadata binary.

Inheritance

The IMetaDataImport interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IMetaDataImport also has these types of members:
