I'm looking for an experienced C++ developer to write a relatively simple but rubust dll.
The purpose of this dll is to return an associated icon image (preferably as Binary) from Windows for a provided file path and icon size parameter.
The dll needs to be written to work within the C++ redistributable runtime - so NOT dot net, and must be 32 & 64 bit compatible.
Its need to be compatible with these OS's
Windows XP SP2 +
Windows 7 +
Windows Server 2003 + (2008, 2010)
The dll needs to accept two parameters.
1. File path. eg. "C:\tempproject.docx" or "C:\temp\my project.pdf"
2. Size. eg. "Small", "Medium" or "Large" - this obviously means the respective sized icon image is returned
We currently have a work around solution written in C# dot net. Our solution creates a bmp file of the icon image which our software picks up and converts to binary. We can provide what code we have so far if that helps.
I'm only interested in developers with proven experience. This dll must be robust!
We have more projects coming up so I am also looking for someone i can work with in the future.
My apologies for the garbled text section. The freelancer site kindly swapped out all my quotes and backslashes to make some of the description unreadable. Not only that.. I can't edit my own description and they can't tell me when the problem will be fixed.. great!!
NOTE: We expect to receive the source code. If this is a problem please do not bid.
See 1245413.txt (attached) for the project description thats not garbled .
