Hi,

Do you mean extensions written in VB .Net? Shell extensions, whatever
type they are, are COM objects. You can't produce COM objects with .Net.
Of course, there's Interop but I don't believe that writing a shell
extension in a .Net language is a good idea until the .Net Framework
comes natively with the OS. There are many shell extensions attached to
the Explorer and each of them must load as quickly as possible.
Especially if it is a context menu extension.

Maybe you'll find VB .Net samples but very frankly, I wouldn't do that.

I must test this code. I'm curious about the results. Especially when
the extension is loaded the first time. Loading the whole .Net machinery
just for running a context menu extension appears to be overkill.

Any other opinion?

That were my thoughts too, but not everybody wants do dig into C++ or VB
Classic...
