hi grv575,

I think u miss understand me,

I know how to deal with propertySheet, but not when use with COM's PropertySheet Handler.

I have no idea what is wrong with my program, it seems everything is ok, and I try to put some msgbox for some checking but it doesn't seems have problem,

I need someone help me figure out what is wrong with my source :confused:

im relatively sure your program doesn't all registration needed for shell extensions. I have done these registrations "by hand" and your extension prog is then called. Even the tab and your message box is displayed, but shortly afterwards explorer crashes. So there remains something to do.

What i have done so far:

1. I couldnt find any place in your registry script where a "shellex" key is registered for an extension. So I defined your CLSID in "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers". I found your CLSID definition in mainext.rgs, but im afraid Ernies script handler cannot handle keyword "noremove". In any case, this entry is missing after registration and without it explorer cannot know what dll to call. So I manually added this entry too.
2. After this job your dll is called (procs "Initialize" and "AddPages"). But since you dont have defined a "dialog" resource for the PROPSHEETPAGE structure, nothing else happened. I added a simple dialog box resource and then the TabProc dialog proc is called, the tab is displayed, but some time later explorer crashes.

Hi Yanda

By making search on the Web, I found the following link

look at the program "myprop.zip" , it should solve your problem.

your shell extension now runs on my system.

the reason for the crash was Release() was called and the dll was unloaded. It has been fixed by a line in AddPages:

externdef g_ObjectCount:DWORD

mov PropSheet.pcRefParent,offset g_ObjectCount

heres a working dll (with source).

IF you want to rebuild the dll, colib file SetSubKey.asm has to be modified (theres a small "bug" inside):

.IF !Flags
.IF (NewKey) ;<--- change
invoke RegCloseKey, NewKey ;<-----change
mov NewKey, NULL
invoke RegCreateKeyEx, OpenKey, pszToken, NULL, NULL,
jmp GetNextT
