Wondering if anyone has previously done any custom shell extension previewers.  The bottom line is that I want to be able to display a bitmap (or graphic) which can be viewed from windows explorer in the thumbnails view.  Any pointers to sample code etc.  Thanks

what you need to do is implement an object that supports the IPersistFile and the IExtractImage interfaces

see

I have just implemented one of these myself this morning for my own file type and it works a treat :)
