intercept "Open" event for any files in a given folder

Hi all
Is it possible for a .Net app. to intercept the "open" action on files in a
given directory.
I want to intercept the "open" action and the perhaps direct the client (
the app. which is trying to open the file ) to another file - or stream
another file back to the client in someway???

Any help is appreciated

Regards Morten

Hello Morten,

Thanks for your post. As I understand, you need to intercept the "open"
file action and redirect to open another file. Please correct me if there
is any misunderstanding. I now share the following information with you:

1. In .NET, we can use the FileSystemWatcher class to listen to the file
system change notifications and raises events when a directory, or file in
a directory, changes. With this class, we can watch for renaming, deletion,
or creation of files or directories. Please refer to the following MSDN

FileSystemWatcher Class

2. Please kindly note that FileSystemWatcher is just used to get
notifications of file/directory changes. If you want to intercept the file
manipulations and change their behavior, you may need to resort to API Hook
or even File System Filter Driver. Please take a look at following articles:


Installable File System (IFS) Kit

Hope this helps.
