I need a Group Policy Editor MMC snap-in extension coded that I can then further expand on or extend via a separate MMC snap-in, the difficult part is it needs to access the <a href="[url removed, login to view]" http:="" windowssdk.msdn.microsoft.com="" en-us="" library="">IGPEInformation</a> interface from within the Group Policy Editor. You should be familiar with MMC snap-in development, knowledgeable in InterOp issues when communicating between unmanaged code and managed code environments... I have been able to extend the Group Policy Editor easily enough using both the new MMC3 [managed code framework (MCF)] (.Net 2) and the [Iron Ring framework] (.Net 1.1, already written in C#). The problem is you need to be able to do a QueryInterface on the DataObject returned by the MMC node in order to access the IGPEInformation interface. The new MMC3 MCF abstracts the DataObject, so I can't access it via the MCF. Therefore I need to code a native MMC snap-in to access the data object and it's interfaces. The Iron Ring framework is a native C# framework and includes complete samples, but doesn't currently support accessing the interface I need. So what I need is the Iron Ring framework & samples (pref. the VB.Net sample) to be extended to allow access to the IGPEInformation interface (where I can then code from) or a native MFC MMC snap-in extension to be coded that allows further snap-in extension via the MMC3 MCF that exposes the IGPEInformation interface of the currently open Group Policy Editor via some properties/methods/SharedData object. This later approach must be stable and must allow full access to the IGPEInformation interface (i.e. registry handles passed back from the interface etc. must be usable in a .Net MMC3 snap-in).
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done - including any work done in extending the Iron Ring framework and samples used to demonstrate the completing of the project.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition as a visual studio solution that compiles and runs in the development environment including all samples that may demonstrate extension MMC samples that implement all features of the IGPEInformation interface in a .Net language (preferably VB.Net).
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased.
