Compile ReactOS 0.2.0 explorer.exe from source

Post by Ootu »

Hi, I'm trying add wallpaper support to explorer.exe from ReactOS while running under windows 10, but before I get that far I need to know how you compile explorer.exe, All I know is that the source code for ReactOS explorer is located in reactos-0.2.0-source.zip\subsys\system\explorer. Also the reason I'm using 0.2.0 is because it runs without any other files or dlls needed such as notifyhook.dll and supports colors as the background already unlike explorer_old.exe. Thanks in advance :)

Current explorer implementation does not depend on notifyhook.dll, it's needed only for explorer_old.

Ok thanks for that information, I genuinely didn't know that. However I'd still like to use explorer.exe from 0.2.0 because it runs flawlessly on windows 10 without any compatibility mode, and runs better than explorer_old.
