Hello, I´ve just finished writing a menu context extension and would now like to try it out. How do I register it so it will be shown when I right click a .txt document for example? There's probably diffrent ways in diffrent Windows versions, but I would mainly want it to work in Windows XP. I´ve been googling around the best I could but havent really find anything that could help me out. Thanks! :) [Edited by - _vol on June 16, 2005 11:22:58 AM]

Look up regserv32! It's a program that you must call to manually register you COM/Shell extensions with Windows. I believe it works the same way on all versions but I could be wrong. I know it works on XP because I made my self a desktop bar that used that utility to register it. After that, I could then right light the taskbar and Blamo! there it was. Try looking on MSDN for this type of information. Like, look up shell programming or shell extensions.

-Oops
I forget to tell you that you must have special fucntion implemented in the module you are registering. You should find this information though when you look up the utility.
