WHAT IS THE GRAPHISOFT SHELL EXTENSION
The GRAPHISOFT Shell Extension is a utility which modifies your Windows shell in order to display the preview and the summary of the contents of GRAPHISOFT related files, for example ARCHICAD project and library part files. After installing the GRAPHISOFT Shell Extension, you can preview these files in Windows Explorer with right-clicking on the file, click on Properties, in the Properties window click on the Info&Preview tab.
Normally the GRAPHISOFT Shell Extension is automatically installed by the GRAPHISOFT Setup program. If not, you can install it manually by opening the GRAPHISOFT Shell Extension folder in the ARCHICAD folder of your hard disk and starting the “Register.bat” batch file. Right click on the file and select “Run as administrator”. Provide administrator credentials in the upcoming dialog.
