Today I was trying to get create and get working, a new tab for the User class in ADUC property pages. Last time I did it, it was complicated and did not support .NET (at least not without Marshalling and going through the loops of fire 😉 ). Touday I found out that there is MMC 3.0 and finally there is a support for .NET in property pages. I have decided to write everything down so next time will do it I won’t have to google everthing all over again 🙂 .
First donwload and install (beside usual dev environment stuff):
- Copy sample ExtensionToPropertySheetSample from dafault location c:Program FilesMicrosoft SDKsWindowsv6.0SamplesSysMgmtMMC3.0,
- Open the solution
- Build it, se it fail
- Change missing reference to Microsoft.ManagementConsole to default location in c:WINDOWSSystem32.
- Build it.
- Install it through installutil.
- Run compmgmt.msc
- See new property page on the root node of the computer management tree 🙂
