In Windows XP the "Network Connections" window can be opened by executing ncpa.cpl. However, Windows internally seems to invoke %WINDIR%\system32\netshell.dll,-1200. Is there any way to manually access it through this DLL? I tried launching it via RUNDLL32 but alas.

This is just a curiosity.

It's a reference to a string resource: string resource 1200 in that DLL is "Network Connections".
