Open With Context Menu Issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When you right-click on a file and choose Open-with, none of the applications may be listed in the menu. Also, the Choose Program... option may be missing, and the Open With entry is repeated again.
    I found that the Live Mesh shell extensions 'WLCShellMenuHandler Class' was causing the problem by using ShellExView from http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html.  I went through each context menu extension disabling/enabling until I found that my Open With context menu worked correctly after disabling the Live Mesh extension 'WLCShellMenuHandler Class'.

  • I have a _fairly_ clean build of Vista here and I don't get that problem at all.

    I'm running basic developer stuff, nothing too out of the ordinary, but after installing Mesh I am not observing any negative changes to the shell.

    if emailing, remember to remove the obvious
