I wants to make a smart phone home screen plugin in which my application[which is a C# application] shortcut icon appear on the home screen.
I have make a today screen pulgin for this purpose for pocket pc version of my application.But I think home screen behavior is little bit different.
In pocket PC after making my dll I add the registry entries in the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Today\Items\....
But Like Pocket PC I can't find the registry entry for Home.
What I want's is the home screen extension that regardless of home screen change this link should remain same on all home screen

I'm not exactly sure how to go about adding the plugin, but you'd have to take a look at the homescreen xml file. It is in the Application Data/Home folder on the phone. There will be a different xml file for each homescreen available on your phone. You can open them in notepad to edit them, or use on of the many available homescreen editing programs (I've never used them, I always just edit in notepad).

I want's a dll project in which I create a home screen plugin.
I see the sample in windows mobile 5.0 sdk named HomeScreen.
I can modify to take my work
But I don't want a new home screen to be added.I want's this pugin entry added in all the files with .home.xml extension in the /Application Data/Home folder.And after installation refresh the current home screen.
Can anybody provide me some sample to do it programatically?
