How to handle a new URI Scheme in Windows

This is something I was completely unaware: we can handle new Uri scheme in Windows (with great caution in respect to security). Either launching an application in charge of handling this uri (Registering an Application to a URI Scheme) or in developping a completly new component (About Asynchronous Pluggable Protocols or An Asynchronous Pluggable Protocol Handler for data: URLs).

Wow, I’m going to be able to open Mac/Linux smb://server/path syntax in Windows (just a small executable transforming this to \\server\path and open it in Explorer).
