I use Dopus as a File Manager.

When I select a file in DOPUS, I can right click the selected file and from the Context menu select Scan with AVG Free.

I would like to simplify this because Right Click to get the context menu and select the Scan with AVG Free command can be a little tedious.

Ideally, I could create a custom button and attach a command to execute AVG Free and scan the selected file.

But I'm not sure how to locate the command the context menu is using.

The command C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgscanx.exe accepts commandline instructions.

But the scanning is quite fast and it appears to be a DOS based command and the scanning results appears momentarily in a DOS windows and disappears before you can even look at it.

The Right Click Context Menu command Scan with AVG Free, brings up a Windows box telling you it's scanning and then the results.

Are there any DOPUS experts around here that knows the answer ?

Here is how to add a context menu to a button

Open regedit then find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
there should be a AVG entry there & it will have a string that looks like this {B089FE88-FB52-11D3-BDF1-0050DA34150D}<this one is for eset nod V3

Create a new button then edit it in advance mode & paste this in there


Quote
FileType CONTEXTFORCE CONTEXTMENU={AVG's string}
so it would look like this
FileType CONTEXTFORCE CONTEXTMENU={B089FE88-FB52-11D3-BDF1-0050DA34150D}

Wow, thanks for the tip.

It works great.

Only thing now is that I have to figure out how to get the button to show up instead of "Scan with AVG Free" on the toolbar.

I would like configured it to show the icon Image on the toolbar instead because that takes up a lot less screen real estate.

Changing the Label or Tip fields in the DOPUS command editor dialog box makes no difference - ie "Scan with AVG Free" still show up.

It must be picking up the "Scan with AVG Free" from the registry key.
