I'm having a problem about displaying a menu item in Windows 7 64bit.
I'd like to add a menu item into context menu after right-clicking on a file in Windows Explorer. to display it, I did as below.
- Register a classID into registry so that Windows Explorer load my DLL whenever right-click on a file.
|Default item store ClassID value
- Register COM object
|My ClassID value
|Default item store the location if DLL file
In window XP, after right-click on file, my dll file is loaded successfully.
However, in windows 7 64bit, this dll file isn't loaded.
Please kindly help me to give the solution.
