What happened to ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor?

I'm currently working on project developed by another developer who has used ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor library for geoprocessing all over the place in the application. I need advise on, What would happen if I called Geoprocessor.ExecuteAsync from ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor library, would it still execute the geoprocessing tasks in 64-bit background geoprocessing if available?

I'm trying to avoid using ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessing library (time constraints can't afford to rewrite the code) which I know would use 64-bit background geoprocessing if I used IGeoprocessor2.ExecuteAsync.

I was wondering whether ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor library has been depreciated? I can add reference to this library in my ArcGIS 10.2 project but there are no documentation on this library in ArcObjects Help for .Net. All documentations point to ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessing.

here http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/conceptualhelp/0001/00010000015z000000.htm you have documentation 'Running a geoprocessing tool using background geoprocessing'

Documentation of "Geoprocessor library and tool reference" can be found here http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/componenthelp/#/ArcObjects_namespaces/00080000000...

Try adding Geoprocessor to your solution as:

using ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor;

It is not giving me any error on 10.6 - that means it is still available. Now, you'll find the documentation within the above two links. Interestingly, the help topic for Geoprocessor is not visible and difficult to find  The following link for Geoprocessor does not work
