Hello,

I need the complete code for an small application (or DLL?) which use the IShellExecuteHook function.
(The best sample would be: Befor a application starts a messagebox should display with the question: "Should the file "notepade.exe" be executed?" [Yes] [No])

Thank you!

I've digged in my download folder and found this extract. Perhaps it helps you.

unit StartRunHook;

interface

uses
  Windows, ActiveX, ComObj, ShlObj, ShellApi;

type
  TShellExecuteHook = class(TComObject, IShellExecuteHook)
  public
    function Execute(var ShellExecuteInfo: TShellExecuteInfo):HResult;stdcall;
  end;

const
  Class_ShellExecuteHook: TGUID = '{29F97553-FBD6-11D1-AFC1-00A024D1875F}';
implementation

uses ComServ, SysUtils, Registry;

function TShellExecuteHook.Execute(var ShellExecuteInfo: TShellExecuteInfo):HResult;
  begin
  ShellExecuteInfo.hinstapp := 33; // > 32
  // confirm operation
  Result := MessageBox(0, 'Fred',
    'IShellExecuteHook Shell Extension...' , MB_YESNOCANCEL);
end;

type
  TShellExecuteHookFactory = class(TComObjectFactory)
  public
    procedure UpdateRegistry(Register: Boolean); override;
  end;

procedure TShellExecuteHookFactory.UpdateRegistry(Register: Boolean);
var
  ClassID: string;
begin
  if Register then
    begin
      inherited UpdateRegistry(Register);
      ClassID := GUIDToString(Class_ShellExecuteHook);
      with TRegistry.Create do
        try
          RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
          OpenKey('SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions', True);
          OpenKey('Approved', True);
          WriteString(ClassID, 'Chameleon ShellExecute Hook');
          CloseKey;
          OpenKey('Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellExecuteHooks\', True);
          WriteString(ClassID, '');
        finally
          Free;
        end;
      end
  else
    inherited UpdateRegistry(Register);
end;

initialization
  TShellExecuteHookFactory.Create(ComServer, TShellExecuteHook, Class_ShellExecuteHook, '',
    'Chameleon ShellExecute Hook', ciMultiInstance, tmApartment);
end.

Regards, Madshi.

P.S: Ehm, I'm quite sure that this API only hook ShellExecute(Ex) calls, but NOT CreateProcess calls. I hope, that's no problem for you...

function TShellExecuteHook.Execute(var ShellExecuteInfo: TShellExecuteInfo):HResult;
  begin
  ShellExecuteInfo.hinstapp := 33; // > 32
  // confirm operation
  Result := MessageBox(0, 'Fred',
    'IShellExecuteHook Shell Extension...' , MB_YESNOCANCEL);
end;

may be changed like this:

function TShellExecuteHook.Execute(var ShellExecuteInfo: TShellExecuteInfo):HResult;
  begin
  ShellExecuteInfo.hinstapp := 33; // > 32
  // confirm operation
  Result:=S_FALSE;
  if MessageBox(0, 'Go on?',
    'IShellExecuteHook Shell Extension...' , MB_YESNO)=IDNO then
    result:=S_OK;
end;


Good Luck.

  Result:=S_FALSE;
  if MessageBox(0, 'Go on?',
    'IShellExecuteHook Shell Extension...' , MB_YESNO)=IDNO then
    result:=S_OK;

Do you know any example for this (when does a program be started by CreateProcess?)

CreateProcess is often used, when one programs executes another one. E.g. if a starter application starts another application and waits until the other application is finished. You can't do this with ShellExecute (I mean wait for the other app to finish).
