    Book recommendation for Windows Desktop User Interface/Shell programming?

    I want to do something similar to Rainmeter.
    I want to do it myself, because I am scared that Rainmeter's third party gadgets would have viruses.
    Thanks

    Are you scared you may be downloading a virus infested distribution or are you scared the gadgets themselves may have built-in malign properties that will kick into action once integrated into your code?

    Both can be tested for and ruled out. It's a much simpler and cost efficient approach than developing your own gadgets. And besides, being too suspicious isn't good for your health.

    For a guide to Windows shell programming in c++, have a look at Visual c++ Windows Shell Programming http://www.amazon.co.uk/Visual-C-Win...ll+programming

    It's a little bit dated but still relevant.
