hi,
I've not been able to make the shellCopyHook example work,
can someone help me ?
By the way, is it possible to make a copyHook on files too ?
As far as I know it is only possible on directory ?
This is what VC++5 doc says ...
If it is possible, how can I do ? Can someone give me an example ?
Thanks in advance

Hi Jeurk

I noticed a few things with the Shell CopyHook sample.  (Some of these may seem obvious, but it helps to check everything.)
1)  You need to reboot your system before it will work.
2)  You have to edit the CopyHook.reg file before you merge it with the registy, so that it points to your DLL path.  (Do this before you reboot.)  Change the line after:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8e3e0f0a-0fcc-11ce-bcb0-b3fd0e253819}\InProcServer32]
from:
    @= "copyhook.dll"
to:
    @= "C:\\MyPath\\MySubPath\\copyhook.dll"
This assumes your DLL is in C:\MyPath\MySubPath.
NOTE: You must use double backslashes in this line for the path separators!!

Then merge this file with the registry.

Regarding your question on files:  As far as I know the Copy Hook can only be applied to shell folders and printer objects, but NOT to files.
