SharpShell 2.0

Posted on
C# SharpShell

I have just released SharpShell 2.0  - you can get the release from or the new GitHub page at

This release has been primarily a bugfixing release, but there is one very useful new feature, the Server Registration Manager tool (srm.exe). This is a standalone application that can be used to install and uninstall SharpShell servers.

srm install server.dll -codebase

srm uninstall server.dll

This tool makes it much easier to deploy SharpShell servers. You can call the tool as a Custom Action in a MSI project, either by using Visual Studio 2010's installer project type, or a WiX project. I'll be writing up an article on the CodeProject on how to use the tool soon, until then you can download the tool and try it out now!
