ShellDispenser-Dev

Introduction

Often restarting Windows Explorer manually can get quite cumbersome.  And closing Explorer by terminating it forcefully can lead to an undesirable user experience.  But Explorer can be restarted the proper way!  Until now you needed Task Manager or e.g. the Windows function TerminateProcess to improperly close Explorer the hard way.  ShellDispenser-Dev on the other hand allows you to restart Windows Explorer quickly, easily, and properly!

ShellDispenser-Dev is a small component that will make restarting Windows Explorer that much easier.  Closing, starting and restarting Explorer can be performed by calling the appropriate function.  This way restarting Explorer can easily be integrated as a step in your project or product.  You can e.g. use ShellDispenser-Dev as a part of your installation process.

If restarting Explorer is a part of your project, then ShellDispenser-Dev is the component you have been looking for!
