I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1- Add form1 to project1.
2- Add command1 to form1.
3- Paste the the following code:

Private Type SHELLEXECUTEINFO
 cbSize        As Long
 fMask         As Long
 hwnd          As Long
 lpVerb        As String
 lpFile        As String
 lpParameters  As String
 lpDirectory   As String
 nShow         As Long
 hInstApp      As Long
 lpIDList      As Long
 lpClass       As String
 hkeyClass     As Long
 dwHotKey      As Long
 hIcon         As Long
 hProcess      As Long
End Type

Private Const SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST = &HC
Private Const SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS = &H40
Private Const SEE_MASK_FLAG_NO_UI = &H400

Private Declare Function ShellExecuteEX Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteEx" (SEI As SHELLEXECUTEINFO) As Long

Private Function ShowProperties(FilePath As String, OwnerhWnd As Long) As Long
 Dim SEI As SHELLEXECUTEINFO
 Dim Ret As Long

 With SEI
  .cbSize = Len(SEI)
  .fMask = SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS Or SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST Or SEE_MASK_FLAG_NO_UI
  .hwnd = OwnerhWnd
  .lpVerb = "properties"
  .lpFile = FilePath
  .lpParameters = vbNullChar
  .lpDirectory = vbNullChar
  .nShow = 0
  .hInstApp = 0
  .lpIDList = 0
 End With

 Ret = ShellExecuteEX(SEI)

 ShowProperties = SEI.hInstApp
End Function

 ShowProperties "d:\winnt", Me.hwnd
End Sub

123-etc, etc.

Bin huwairib answered your question and, if the code works, you must award him the ponits.  You should repost your second question as a new question.  Besides, you don't want to get a reputation for cheating people out of points, do you?

You comment about a lack of effort is silly.  Your question did not require a whole lot of code and is quite easy to do (once you know how).  You now know how, so award the points.

And speaking of effort, how can you criticize Bin for a lack of effort when you couldn't even spend a little time coming up with a decent screen name?  :)

I think 1234567 is right.

When you cut and paste the code into the project it doesn't even work.

No offense to Bin huwairib or any others :)

dto,

What do you mean it did not work?!!

First, where did you try it? windows95 or WindowNT.

Second, cut and paste will not work alway because times some grapage might inserted between the lines, you have to filter it before using it, I don't think anyone like to behave as dumb user
then don't call your self a developer.
