Description:
Windows Internet Explorer uses a dll file called
shdoclc.dll which varies depending on the OS and the
version of IE. It's location also varies according
to the OS being used.

We need to send our customers an app that
deletes their current shdoclc.dll file and replaces it
with the appropriate updated version, (which will
depend on their current configuration of OS/IE version.)

If possible, app should "detect" which OS & IE version
the user has and not require the user to enter
anything.

All I want the user to have to do is download a single
executable, run it, and then get a little "Thank You"
dialog box.

We will supply all the updated versions of the
shdoclc.dll files and you can decide the best way to
integrate these into the app. But...

We'll also need to be able to change the shdoclc files
whenever we need to make any updates.

We prefer Visual Basic, but would consider other
languages.



Deliverables:
Complete and fully-functional working program in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.
Non-compete and non-disclosure agreement.


Platform:
OS = Windows 9x and later



Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
May 20, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Hi there. I could have this program to you within a couple of days, if I gathered the information correctly.

Basically:

1.) Search user's hard drive for all instances of 'SHDOCLC.DLL'.
2.) Replace all instances of 'SHDOCLC.DLL' with custom version.
3.) Display 'Thank you' to customer.

This could be done very easily, however, I'd be worried that you render IE unusable by replacing every version with yours, so I would have to disclaim myself from all consequences of doing this. However, if this isn't an issue, I could have a working version of this program to you in a few hours, and a fully deployable version within a day or so. Of course, we COULD set it up so that only certain versions of SHDOCLC.DLL will be replaced.

Let me know,
-Marcus :)
