The size of the dll using Visual Studio.NET on Windows
2000 is much larger (~factor 1:10) than that generated
using this task.
Any idea what options I should set so the task produces
an equally large dll. The smaller(task) dll doesn't find it's
dependencies when deployed to target systems and this
is an undesirable effect !

Thanx, Roland !

    Possibly the VS.NET build is statically linking when the cctask
    build in dynamically linking. Can't really diagnose the problem
    without specifics of the VS.NET project and supposedly
    equivalent cctask build.
