so complicated....

if u cant wait for the feature (CDX Shell not needed!)

cut this into a reg-file =================
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.epub\ShellEx]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.epub\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11D1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@="{EF7605D6-C512-4F90-827B-5DE32DAB94F7}"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.epub\ShellEx\{e357fccd-a995-4576-b01f-234630154e96}]
@="{EF7605D6-C512-4F90-827B-5DE32DAB94F7}"
=====================================

and install this reg

the only one thing the coder should think about is which imagefile should be use
if exists more then one image or the image contain in deep folders
