I are writing a document management system and need to find a way to be notified when a document is about to be opened in a particular directory. The document could be opened via an Olelink, hyperlink or just double clicking. It needs to work for any document type (word, excel, txt, etc..)
I've been looking at namespaces, shell extensions, FindFirstChangeNotification and urlmon but haven't found anything yet. I really don't want to have to write a Vxd to do this. There has to be another way
Any suggestions you can give would be greatly appreciated.
