#include <iostream>
#include "ShlDisp.h"

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
    CoInitialize(0);

    IShellDispatch4 *pShellDispatch4 = 0;
    HRESULT hr;

    if (SUCCEEDED(hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_Shell, 0, CLSCTX_SERVER,
        IID_IShellDispatch, reinterpret_cast<void**>(&pShellDispatch4))))
    {
        std::cout << "Shell instance obtained";

        if (SUCCEEDED(hr = pShellDispatch4->WindowsSecurity()))
        {
            std::cout << "Windows security invoked!!";
        }

        pShellDispatch4->Release();
    }
    else
    {
        std::cout << "Failed to obtain shell instance";
    }

    CoUninitialize();

    return 0;
}
