[SOLVED] Context open folder with FolderTimeUpdate
« on: June 03, 2016, 04:35:29 AM »
I'm trying to add a context entry to a selected folder which will open a program's GUI.
The program is a standalone named FolderTimeUpdate (NirSoft), 120 KB.

It's easy enough via the Registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Folder Time\command
 and
F:\\Portable\\FolderTimeUpdate+\\FolderTimeUpdate.exe \"%1\"
It works but that gets me nowhere because the actual folder path is not selected. I must still drag & drop the folder onto the opened GUI.

Is this an impossible action or should I change the command key?
Any tips most welcome.

Based on the help file on NirSoft's site, I think you have to add the /BaseFolder switch first like this:

F:\\Portable\\FolderTimeUpdate+\\FolderTimeUpdate.exe /BaseFolder \"%1\"

Untested, and I've never used that particular program, so YMMV.

Fantastic.  I'll mark this thread as solved and move it.
