Get every file extension in the registry

9 posts in this topic

I am planning on making a Computer Logger, it will log every program, that is ran, every file that is viewed, etc.

So I need it to look through the Registry root, and get every extension in there, and then somehow, not sure, write it to run my compiled .exe, via command line, with the program that needs to be ran, and its parameters, so basically, if I opened a .txt file, it would run my .exe like this:

ProgramLogger.exe "Notepad.exe" "C:\Users\Swift\Desktop\file.txt"

Then, my program will log it, and then use ShellExecute($CmdLine[1], $CmdLine[2])

But, my issue is, how to get every extension, and then write to every extension to run my program.

You won't be able to get every extension like that. Many file types are handled by weird "handler" objects. They aren't programs and you can't run them via shell execute.

I must say, doing something like sending every file to your application will slow your computer down ridiculously. You'd do better to watch for new processes and just read the command line associated with each.

Heh, Ok. Yeah it sounded a bit complicated, but thanks for the information.

Ok, so getting started here, I know how to check for new processes, but what cmd, or UDF is there to get the command line from a process?

That's what richard was saying. That if I did that to all of the extensions, my computer would run like a turtle...

I'd take a look at the ProcessList() command in the help file.

You can then just list them all to an array, recheck ever 5 or 10 seconds, and add new processes, etc, that are not there previously. Seems easiest approach to me.

Sorry for, like, being a ***** but I said, that I already know how to do this. The only issue i'm having is how to get the command line of a running program.
