Technical overviewWindows 7 shell libraries are common stores of user-defined locations. Applications can use these libraries to manage user content. However, because libraries are not file system locations, you may have to update some applications to work with shell libraries as if they were folders.
The sample projects that are provided in this download package show how you can programmatically manipulate Windows 7 shell libraries by using Visual C++, Visual C#, or Visual Basic .NET. In these sample projects, you can find basic steps about how to create, open, delete, rename, and manage shell libraries. These sample projects also show how you can add, remove, and list folders in a shell library.
Note For more information about how to create and how to deploy these sample projects, see the Readme.txt file that is included in the download package.
