More information:
This .dll encapsulates the shell automation library and displays shell objects (e.g., file/folder listings, as well as special folders such as the control panel and desktop) in a listview control. The result is that you can add a windows explorer control to your application.

NOTES: 1) This .dll will work in Windows 2000 only. 2) The .dll has a number of dependencies. One is the author's extended menu, which you can get at http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=934. The second is a C++ .dll that allows you to pass an instance of the extended menu object to the .dll. The C++ object, including its code, is included with this package.
