It was posted by Bart van der Werf, who also posted a workaround that is inside those WayBack links.

Why Is SQLite Coded In C

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/04

Old, but still an interesting read: [WayBack] Why Is SQLite Coded In C and [WayBack] Appropriate Uses For SQLite.

TL;DR: SQLite – mainly competing with fopen has few dependencies and uses C in a boring way. I think that’s good.

Shell Extensions (.NET)

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/04

Over time it seems that Shell Extensions (.NET) [WayBack] have become possible.

In the past this was recommended against because Shell Extensions can be loaded by any process having a file dialog open, even if these did not expect .NET framework(s) to be hosted in-process.

It looks like that restriction has been alleviated with .NET 4.x where it is possible to in-process host multiple .NET frameworks: [WayBack] CLR Inside Out: In-Process Side-by-Side
