Vista & 7 toolbars
I am a C++ developer and currently I'm trying to grasp the Microsoft Shell extensions API's... I have been able to create a simple Namespace extension that holds folders and files as favorites. everything worked brilliantly on XP. the problem was when I tried to use my NSE on Vista.
On Vista, when I open my NSE the vista toolbar shows only the help button. However, clicking the damn button does not do anything. On 7 I was shocked to see that when I used my NSE the whole toolbar was visible but clicking any button did not do anything. Only the side view pane worked. Other buttons like Organize and view did not show any lists and the Uninstall button did not start the application manager.
I was wondering if anyone knows if Microsoft has released special API's for the new toolbars and on what SDK should I work to enable handle those button. Or if someone knows if there is a way to disable the toolbar completely, meaning that the toolbar wont show when I start my NSE.
I would appreciate any help on this matter.
