UltraEdit Vista x64 Context Menu Fix Print
Sunday, 30 December 2007 16:38


UltraEdit is the best text editor that I know of. It provides the ability to integrate with Windows Explorer under Advanced / Configuration / File Associations; but even the latest version 13.20a doesn't add itself to Vista x64's Windows Explorer.

I was very addicted to being able to edit any file from Windows Explorer from the right-click context menu, but after moving to Vista x64 I wasn't able to do it. The solution I came up with was to add it to the registry myself. You can download the registry file below.

REGEDIT4
 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\UltraEdit]
@="UltraEdit"
 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\UltraEdit\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\IDM Computer Solutions\\UltraEdit-32\\uedit32.exe\" %1"

Great! Thanks! It works! You may want to check the path to your UEdit exec before running the reg update. I used it with an older (32 bit version) and worked without a glitch. Thanks.

Work with v11 on x64 as well.

You should add quotes around %1, too...didn't work for me otherwise on files with spaces in the path:

REGEDIT4 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellUltraEdit]
@="UltraEdit"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellUltraEditcommand]
@=""C:Program Files (x86)IDM Computer SolutionsUltraEdit-32uedit32.exe" %1"

I had the same problem under Windows 7 x64 and UltraEdit 14.20. I fixed it by adding UltraEdit's "ue64ctmn.dll", which is defined as a CLSID "b5eedee0-c06e-11cf-8c56-444553540000", to the context menu handlers like this:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellexContextMenuHandlersUltraEdit]
@="{b5eedee0-c06e-11cf-8c56-444553540000}"

Ooops, of course with backslashes (as this blog doesn't show them, please replace the / with backslashes):

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/*/shellex/ContextMenuHandlers/UltraEdit]
@="{b5eedee0-c06e-11cf-8c56-444553540000}"
