It's needed to change the reg keys and add at first the correct path, like this:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\AdministrativeTools]
"MUIVerb"="Administrative Tools"

Thanks

The path isn't correct and if you use a tool like TuneUp Utilities or others, you will see that the keys inside:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\AdministrativeTools

will be removed. And no options will be displayed on right click on the Desktop!

Because this reg key needs a command! Take a look inside the Registry!

You can try with the new path I suggest you and you will see that all is really fine!

I guess you are right mate, I just cleaned by registry with tuneup utilities and defragment the registries as well, and guess what the admin tool option was erased. So now I have changed the path as you suggested, I would clean registries after few days and then see how it goes.

Thanks to update the reg file you gave inside your post, like you've done inside Rockers Teams Forum (post # 21):

I see an error inside the reg file:

It's needed to write the correct file to launch ODBC:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\DataSources\command]
@="odbcad32.exe"

Thanks.
