32 bit context menu application not showing in windows 7 64 bit OS RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I have a VB6 application which pops up on the context menu of a E-Document.  This works correctly on a 32 bit OS, ie., on right mouse click of a text file, the application gets displayed for selection.  Whereas the option does not get displayed on a WINDOWS 7 64 bit OS, when RMC on a text file.  This application uses APIs for adding the option to the Windows Registry and for displaying the same in the Context Menu option.

    Please let me know, if any further information is required.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi ,

    It’s more of an app development issue, I would suggest you initial a new thread in our MSDN forum for further help.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thank you for your understanding.
