Registering namespace extension RRS feed

  • Question

  • When registering a namespace extension via regsvr32 libname.dll with a registration process as described in article https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/cc144093(v=vs.85).aspx#basic , it will work on Windows server 2012r2, but not Win7. If I change the root registry key from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT to  HKEY_CURRENT_USER it works on Win7 but not on Windows server 2012 R2.

    What I mean by "it doesn't work" is the junction icon shows in my computer, but it does not open.

    Why is there a difference? Its the same registration code as the Win7SDK ExplorerDataProvider. How can I get this working in Win7, Win8 and Windows Server 2012R2?
