 Shell extension interface to operate on non selected files?


I'm having some trouble getting my shell extension dll to
update file icons when refreshing Explorer. I am creating
each file icon from information in another file, so it is
possible for the icon to change simply by adding or
removing this data file. Since the IPersistFile interface
only operates on selected files, a user needs to have it
selected prior to issuing a refresh if they want the icon
to be updated. Can I get my shell extension to call
GetIconLocation for all files at refresh?

Thanks for your help,
