    On Windows XP (32 bit), in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, it was possible to to add a
    subkey "shell/command/foo" under the key for a file type, and then "foo"
    would appear in the context menu for this file type. When done the same on
    Windows 7 (64bit), "foo" does not appear in the context menu. Why?

  2. Remember that there are two locations in the registry for things: the 32 bit
    view, and the 64-bit view. If the program is a 32-bit program, that may be
    the issue.
