Windows 7: Registry - Context Menu

Registry - Context Menu

The registry entries for the context menu seem to have got very complicated - does anyone understand them? I want to allow right clicking on a zip file to result in selecting something I've written which inteligently unzips a file.
Any ideas?

Hello Ormond, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might be able to use Open With or Default Programs instead to select your program to open ZIP files by default.

Hope this helps,
