Registering an Attachment Snap-in Extension

After you create an attachment snap-in extension, you must register it in order for the MMC and the Security Configuration snap-ins to locate and use it.

Your attachment snap-in must extend the Security Configuration snap-ins namespace by adding its own node as described in the following procedure.

  1. Register the snap-in extension under the following registry key. Do not create a StandAlone key under the snap-in; attachment snap-ins extensions must only be extensions.

             MMC
                SnapIns
  2. Register the attachment snap-in extension under the following subkeys. This can be done as part of your DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer function implementations.
