: Hi Everyone
: Ive written a little tool which calculates a CRC32 of a file and now i want to add an entry to the contextmenu which appears, if you right-click an icon in the explorer. Ive already checked out the registry for other programms which use this ability and it seems to work with DLLs. Can anybody give me a clue how to do this ?
: Im using WinXP and Visual C++ 5.0.
Try this. Open explorer, then Tools->Folder Options, then select the File Types tab. That gives you a list of the "known" filetypes. Scroll down to the type you want to act on, (for example, .txt), then click "Advanced". Here you can see the options already there, and you can add additional ones by clicking "New" and filling in the name of the action and the path to the program that does it.
Med venlig hilsen,
