  • Hi,
    yes, i want to make a (.cpl) files
    how can i make it


    If i understand your question correctly, you want to create a shortcut of your program in control panel explorer. If yes, you dont have to create .cpl file. All you needs is to create registry entry in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\ using vbscript(.vbs) or registry file (.reg) or you can do it from vb.net

    For vbscript or registry, try this link http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t17103.html

  • I think you have to create a .CPL and add it to the control panels reg keys.

    Hi Mohamed,

    You can add one or more methods such as a SUB or FUNCTION to each of the controls in the TOOLBOX
     using one piece of code via what is known as a EXTENSION METHOD.

    You can also create new controls yourself for use on your FORMs.

    Please let me know if either of the above interests you.
    Can you expand a bit on what exatly you are thinking about please?


    Regards,

    John

  • Hi John,
    He means a .cpl within the windows control panel
    for eg "add remove programs"
