Overview: Network Explorer is the place in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system for users to discover and use all of the network resources, including network devices and computers in the Local Area Network (LAN). From Network Explorer, users can see device-specific icons and properties and invoke device-specific actions. This paper describes how Network Explorer discovers a network device; displays a device-specific icon, actions, and properties; and launches a device-specific application. This paper provides information about how to implement customized device-specific icons, actions, and properties for display in Network Explorer.
