Hmm.. i think I;ve already answered such a Q. before ?
It's easy. Just write some ActiveX object which can be instantiated from your app with ListView. Than, call one of
functions of created automation object, passing HWND of ListView into it. And do the all job inside object code.

CServerWrapper * p = CreateServerObject( object_id );
p->DoSomethingWithThisListView( m_wndListView.GetSafeHwnd() );

Thats it.

And one more, if you mean Windows Explorer to be extended with information and you did not yet inside it (didnt created shell extension) (ughh, I;ve missed that in your Q. ;), you should
create Shell Extension. This is pretty complicated stuff, and you better do it without MFC. There is various types of extensions you can do: namespace extension, context menu extension, drag-drop ext, etc. Check some samples on Win32 SDK, I guess there should be one. (vieweing registry from explorer, if i recall correctly)
