  • You are asking question that beyond .net. Do you think every programs out there are made in .net?  That program was created using shell extension. As far as i know, its very dangerous to write shell extension in .net for now, that may change with .net 4.0.  Shell extension is program using unmanaged code (C++/win32).

    If you want to take the risk, then read about shell extension in .net
    Creating Shell Extension Handlers
    Writing shell extension with C#    this is c# sample

    Book : Visual Basic Shell Programming .  Read chapter 11, Shell Namespace Extension, that is what you needs to do this.


    Read this Don't do Shell Extension Handlers in .NET

    If you want to do it with unmanaged code, then try to post your question in C++ forum

  • Hi,

    If you get no reply, then there is probably nobody understand your question or knows the answer on that.

    It can be that it is completel VB, but that does not assure you get an anser, nobody even not the MSFT are obligate to give you an answer.

    If you get no answer, then simply search on another place.

  • 1st thank you cor lighter for your advice but you are always talk like that i think if you don't know then don't open thread again



    2nd about the Shell Extension i know that driver created with shell ext. but i found other applications like webdriver and do the same thing


    i know that vb is limited and can't do any thing

    and in previous thread i asked for this driver developed in any Programing language

    so forgive me but i wasn't mean to get it in vb.net only

    C# or C++ is ok or any other language i'll try to understand how it could be and i'll do my own one

    about searching internet after to many months i didn't find anything
    and i was this that this place for the main developers of dot net


    here is Microsoft if i didn't find what i need here then where i can find ??

    thanks for all of you and i wish some one can reply

    And since you couldn't do anything in vb6 without calling the Windows API, you can do it in VB.NET.

    @John, do you think is safe to do shell extension in .net?

  • Kaymaf,

    That is not our concern, simple something to found out for the OP.

    Yesterday I was in doubt proposing your reply as answer, (I do it still after creating this message), however
    than I had the chance, which is often common on this forum,  that the OP would not have read my reply.
