I am looking for a means of retrieving thumbnail images from Windows thumbnail cache using Access VBA. I’ve implemented this in VB.NET via SHCreateItemFromParsingName,
IShellItemImageFactory and IShellItem, but have been unable to translate to VBA.
1. Solution must not involve a console app or the copying of the cached thumbnails to a folder. Will consider a VB.NET created dll
2. Performance is critical. Any solution must be no more than 25% slower than a VB.NET version I am currently using.
3. Must be compatible with VBA7 (32 bit and 64 bit)
For reference, VB.NET versions are widely posted online.
