in reply to (Not Quite Perl) Running Scripts from Right-Click Context Menu in Windows

Instead of making my coworkers play with the registry, I thought I'd try to automate these steps too. If you're interested, here's a generic installer I whipped up. Just copy the code into a text editor and save it as a .reg file. Then double click on the .reg file to populate the registry.

REGEDIT4 ; Replace the following values with your own information. ; ; <INTERNALNAME> = A name for the shortcut. This will not ; be seen, so just use alphanumeric chars. ; You must change this twice below. ; <DISPLAYNAME> = The name of the right-click shortcut. ; <PATH_AND_FILE> = The path to the Perl script. Use double ; backslashes. For example: ; c:\\scripts\\foo.pl [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\<INTERNALNAME>] @="<DISPLAYNAME>" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\<INTERNALNAME>\command] @="perl.exe <PATH_AND_FILE>.pl \"%L\""

Update: Added "%L" to pass the directory to the script. Thanks BrowserUK and Intrepid.
