ShellExtensions API

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?c2FudG9zaA==?=, May 1, 2007.

  1. I have 32 application, which creates a shellextension tab on right clicking
    any drive.

    When I run this 32 bit application run in 64 bit platform under the WOW. I
    am not able to see this ShellExtension API being worked. No tab is visisble.

    FYI: This 32 bit app is built with VC 2003 .NET.

    From MSDN, I stood that ShellExtension for 64 bit support needs native
    application than 32 bit app.

    Is there any way that I can use same 32 bit app make it work under 64 bit
    enironmnet as well ?

    It would be great if somebody can help in ressolvong this issue.

    Thanks in advance.
    Santosh

  2. Hello Santosh,
    To see 32-bit shell extensions you need to run 32-bit version of Explorer.
    Drive_Letter :\windows\syswow64\explorer.exe /separate
    895561 Some Windows Explorer extensions and some Control Panel items are
    not displayed on computers that are running an x64-based version of Windows
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;895561


    Thanks,
