Note for BCB6 developers: Before building projects set Registers variables in None in page Advanced Compiler (Project options). This way the problem BCB5-BCB6 incompatibility (type Variant) is solved. I grateful to Michael Joss and Giuliano Cardinali for their really big help in finding solution.

Shell object's IShellDispatch interface for invoking Start Menu items and dialogs.
In the Shellcc.chm and MSDN Library we can find section that called "Shell objects
for scripting and Visual Basic".
The following objects are implemented by the shell for use in scripting and Visual
Basic: Folder, FolderItem, FolderItems, FolderItemVerb, FolderItemVerbs, Shell,
ShellFolderView, ShellUIHelper, ShellWindows.
Shell - The Shell object represents the objects in the shell. There are methods to
control the shell and to execute commands within the shell. There are also methods to
obtain other shell-related objects.
To create and obtain access to this objects you must import shell32 import library -
Microsoft Shell Controls And Automation (Version 1.0).
When you include Type Library in the project you can access to these objects.
There is small sample of using Shell object.

14/01/2001 - In the new version I creare new Project group and add new project that is
use OLE Automation for the same.
