Set All Assembly Components Lightweight or Resolved Example (VBA)

This example shows how to set all assembly components to either lightweight or resolved.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Open an assembly.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Sets all assembly components to either
'    lightweight or fully resolved.
' 2. Examine the FeatureManager design tree
'    and Immediate window.
