sorry, you must supply the installation path of notepad++.
regsvr32.exe C:\Program ...\NppShell_06.dll
if there are spaces within your path encase it with double quotes like
regsvr32.exe "C:\Program ...\NppShell_06.dll"
… of course must be replaced with your installation path.
And the file NppShell_06.dll MUST be within the installation directory, of course - please double check if this is the case.
Am I missing something ?
Yes, my hint about the spaces in the path :-)
Your call should look like this
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\NppShell_06.dll"
The double quotes are needed as some programs, like regsvr32, determine the parameters
by using a space as a divider. By encasing in double quotes regsvr takes the whole path
as one parameter.
Yes, my hint about the spaces in the path :-)<<
Although i did last time but I forgot to send you the snapshot.
Below is the screenshot with double quotes
did you run this in an elevated command prompt?
As in Run as administrator?
Let me try it again and see
Yes Administrator’s privilege was missing and now it is completed successfully , restarted the computer still the option in the mouse right context is not there
sorry but this means either MS has changed something in regards to shell extension or
your setup has something special about it.
And as I do not have Windows operating system anymore I cannot really try to find out
what is going on.
I’m sorry but I hope someone other with a Windows 10 Installation and knowledge about
what needs to be done reads this and picks up this question.
Just wanted to thank ZillaZilla for posting the problem. I learned from what you were having problems with. I had downloaded Notepad++ and expected it to work right off. Through your post I fixed it and it is working. The only problem was I took off work to do this assignment and wasted all day trying to get this to work.
