    Smile File properties by type

    right clicking a file then selecting Properties and choosing the Details tab (I think it was called summery in xp)
    There is a list of fields which change depending on the file type.
    is it possible to programmaticaly set and get those fields and there values?

    Good luck, kroiz. It is a pain in the neck to deal with in C++. I see its an even bigger pain in C#. You could just make a C++ module for dealing with structured storage then do everything else in C#. But I like doing crazy stuff like that. Not everyone in the world does

    I like doing crazy stuff too but not when I am on a tight schedual.
    This is one of those things you don't expect will take much time to do when you give your time estimations.
