Writing Extended file properties

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to write to the extended properties of a jpg file. I found this:

but it isn't working as I would expect. When I write to a file, I can read back the property that was written. However, I don't see the new data in the corresponding column in windows explorer. That remains blank or with the old data. Can anyone explain what is going on?

Also properties associated with the dll don't seem to correspond with the title of the column in windows explorer. Ex with this dll, it is "Author" and not "Authors" as it is displayed in explorer. So how do I find the proper property to use? Generally I'd use the UDF _FileGetProperty to cycle through and see all that's available, but it doesn't correspond with this.
