The fastest, easy way to copy files from different folders at the same time

Sample Image - MultiCopier.gif


The MultiCopier is a the easiest way, that allows user to copy from different sources (partitions or folders) to the destination, in a few clicks with a simple menu extension to shell.

It's 20% faster than Windows copy as it didn't share the CPU in multiple copying operations, but in only a single thread (operation).


The program includes the following features:

  1. How to implement IContextMenu and managing shell menu and the files and folder associated with it.
  2. How to insert Dialogs in DLL's using ATL
  3. Getting the image list from explorer and manage it in the list control
  4. A good example of simple MAPI (small function used to send an E-mail to the author

To learn more to use this software, just right click on the file or folder or background to get the menu, then choose MultiCopier->How to use

Registering the DLL

You can register the DLL after compiling it by using this command line in the Run dialog.

regsvr32 "c:\mypath\mydll.dll" \\replace the path with the original path of the DLL

UnRegistering the DLL

Simply by writing the previous line, but with the parameter /u as follows:

regsvr32 /u "c:\mypath\mydll.dll"


I would like to thank Michael Dunn, for his great tutorial on writing shell extensions and his extremely useful class CShellFileOp for copying and moving files
