    Enumerating items in "All Programs"

    Greeting all:

    Does anyone know how to enumerate items in all programs in the start menu for the logged-on user? The only way I could think of was to call SHGetSpecialFolderLocation with CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS and CSIDL_PROGRAMS and then combine them. Is there any better way to do it?

    Your approach seems sound. I'm unaware of a better method.
