Although the portable version of FileLocator Pro states:

"FileLocator Pro is configured for operation from a USB device. Shell
settings cannot be set."

I created the following .reg file if anyone wants to run a portable version of FileLocator from their context menu. They just have to enter the current path for their portable copy and execute the .reg file to create context menu options.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;this file allows programs that are portable to be in context menu

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\filelocator]
@="Open with FileLocator"
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\filelocator\command]
@="\"C:\\portable\\FileLocator Pro7.5.2113\\FileLocatorPro.exe\" -d \"%V\"\\"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\filelocator]
@="Open with FileLocator"
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\filelocator\command]
@="\"C:\\portable\\FileLocator Pro7.5.2113\\FileLocatorPro.exe\" -d \"%V\"\\"
