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.
To install and register the attachment snap-in extension
- 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.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft MMC SnapIns
- Register the attachment snap-in extension under the following subkeys. This can be done as part of your DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer function implementations.
