I would like to write an application that can read the positions of the desktop icons, change them and then write them back.

How do I access the position of the desktop icons from .Net? Ideally VB.Net, but C# is ok to.

I will accept AlexFM:s answer since it solves the immediate problem.
I would have liked a C# or .Net solution but it seems that I will have to make do.

Commented:
There is no pure .NET solution for this problem. You can use PInvoke to call API from C#, and if solution contains hook Dll, this Dll cannot be managed.
