This group has helped earlier to solve my problems and I hope I may
get some help this time as well.
I want to dispaly the windows property dialog for files through my
application developed using VC6.0. I am using the function
ShellExecuteEx with the "properties" verb to display the dialog.
However, I am facing a problem while displaying the dialog for .tiff
files on Win98/WinME systems. I tried putting the thing in a separate
thread as I read somewhere that ot may help, but no success.
I tired using the function ShellExecute, but it does not display the
Can anyone suggest what may be wrong or provide solution for this.
Also are there any other methods of dispalying the windows property
dialog in case ShellExecute's problem can not be solved.
I am using the following code:
ShInfo.cbSize = sizeof(SHELLEXECUTEINFO);
ShInfo.fMask = SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST;
ShInfo.hwnd = ((pCallingApp->m_pMainWnd)->m_hWnd);
ShInfo.lpVerb = TEXT("properties");
ShInfo.nShow = SW_SHOW;
ShInfo.lpIDList = pAbsolutepidl;
If any one can provide any help. I shall be greatful.
