    BASIC-friendly book for IShellFolder and other shell interfaces

    At one point years ago this book really helped me work something out. You're probably past the need for it, but something more BASIC-friendly when it comes to the shell interfaces:

    Visual Basic Shell Programming
    by J. P. Hamilton
    O'Reilly Publishing
    ISBN 1-56592-670-6.
    There are copies for cheap on Amazon.

    It's VB6-centric, which is handy because it's so easy to translate class VB to PowerBasic.

    No. There is not a typelib for it; only C++ headers.

    But at the end, can i generate this interface declaration with the combrowser?
