KB6: Third party components

CDBurnerXP uses a couple of non-free third party components, this is a small summary.

StarBurn SDK

The StarBurn SDK from StarBurn Software is the new “core” of CDBurnerXP (fully used as of 4.5 of CDBurnerXP). It is responsible for burning the discs and a lot of stuff related to it.

  • StarBurn.dll
  • StarBurnX13.dll
  • Interop.RocketDivision.StarBurnX.dll
  • ogg.dll, vorbis.dll, vorbisfile.dll (removed in 4.5 of CDBurnerXP)

  • NMSDVDXU.dll
  • Interop.NMSDVDXLib.dll
  • AxInterop.NMSDVDXLib.dll (removed in current versions of CDBurnerXP)

Shell MegaPack

The Shell MegaPack from LogicNP includes a folder dropdown, a file list view and a folder tree view. These three components make up a huge part of CDBurnerXP's primay interface and integrate very well with the OS appearance.

  • LogicNP.FileView.dll
  • LogicNP.FolderView.dll
  • LogicNP.ShComboBox.dll
