QuestionAdd a context menu item in Windows Explorer (C/C++, no MFC) Pin
Derell Licht1-Jun-22 17:53

This seems like a question that should be easy to find an answer to, but I'm not finding anything very convenient...

What I will want to do with this, is to be able to right-click on a folder in Explorer, and have an item "run my program on this folder" available...

I've found two example programs which do this, but each have drawbacks for my application;
1. one is a C# application (which I'm not familiar with, though it *is* pretty similar).
Also, this CodeProject application is using registry modification to do the job; I would prefer to find a link somehow to the Explorer menu, then use InsertMenuItem() from WinAPI to add a link to my application...

2. that brings me to the second example that I found; it's in an older Platform SDK, in a utility called Shell\SampView... that application *does* do what I wish; however, that application is over 8500 lines long!! I am hoping to find a more concise solution to the problem...

Can anyone provide any guidance or example code for this??

I use C++, and build with the MinGW (32-bit) toolchain...
and yes, I realize that once I get *this* issue resolved, I'll still have a variety of other issues to resolve, such as finding the path to my application, and dealing with selection of wrong items (ideally, perhaps just grey out my menu item if the target is not a folder), and many other things, but for now, I just want to find a concise, clear solution to this one problem.
