Persistent Handlers Registered for a File Extension

Note  Indexing Service is no longer supported as of Windows XP and is unavailable for use as of Windows 8. Instead, use Windows Search for client side search and Microsoft Search Server Express for server side search.
 

The following is an example of the registry entry for a persistent handler registered for a file name extension.

\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\
 
    .sam
        = REG_SZ SampleFile
 
    SampleFile
        = REG_SZ Class for Sample Files
        CLSID
           = REG_SZ {40A45370-0386-11D0-AE19-00AA004B9986}
    CLSID
        {40A45370-0386-11D0-AE19-00AA004B9986}
           = REG_SZ Sample Files
           InprocServer32
              = REG_SZ sample.dll
           PersistentHandler
               = REG_SZ {A6317C60-0386-11D0-AE19-00AA004B9986}
