Since I don't have administrator privileges at work I had to install the software manually by copying the program folder to my work machine. It works fine but I'm missing the context menu, how do I set that up?

You can do it using the older 'shell' context entry approach. From the command line type:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Classes\Directory\shell\Mythicsoft Search...\command" /t REG_SZ /d "\"C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft\Agent Ransack\AgentRansack.exe\" -d \"%v\""

More information

This has the effect of:

  1. Create a new key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Directory\shell\Mythicsoft Search...\command

  2. For the default value for the key 'command' put the command line to the program, e.g.

    "C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft\Agent Ransack\AgentRansack.exe" -d "%v"

So you should end up with something like:

Custom context menu

Now when you bring up the context menu on a folder you'll see 'Mythicsoft Search...' as one of the options.

You can replace the text "Mythicsoft Search..." on the key name with whatever text you'd like to appear in the context menu, e.g. "Agent Ransack..."
