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.

Note:
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..."
