    How to Add a Custom Find Utility to the Start Menu?

    Hello,

    I serach the KB and find Q135986:

    The first step to registering a custom Find utility is to implement a shell
    context menu extension that supplies the menu item. The handler's
    IContextMenu::InvokeCommand() member will be called whenever the user
    selects the custom Find utility on the Start Menu.

    I wonder how to do this step in VB. Thanks.

    Jacky

    Re: How to Add a Custom Find Utility to the Start Menu?

    Thank you. But I wonder was the fesample.dll in the sample created in VB?
    How can I create the ID such as {684D9951-575C-11D3-81C5-E0430DD0DD7B} for
    my own ActiveX DLL ?

    Thanks
    Jacky

    The CLSID is created by VB when you compile the DLL. You can view it using
    OleView or by searching in the registry after the DLL is registered.
