First of all, read the documentation for the System.Runtime.InteropServices elements in the .NET Framework SDK documentation. It's important to understand that. There's also a couple articles about COM interop in .NET that you should read in the articles section of the .NET Framework SDK documentation.

Nick Parker has a pretty good one dealing with some of the issues: http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/nettocom.asp[^]

You should also be familiar with some basic COM, since you'll be using a lot of this to use the IActiveDesktop interfaces. There are several articles here on CP that should be useful.

Honestly, though, the WebShots calendar is nothing more than a calendar drawn onto an image that is set as wallpaper. It is not an desktop item (at least, not last time I checked). It merely loads an image, paints a calendar on that, saves that image to a temporary spot and sets that as the wallpaper. Again, using the SystemParametersInfo method would be much easier. Just use the System.Drawing classes to load an image (Bitmap class) and draw on it (Graphics class), then save it and use the method. Simple.
