Someone posted a link to a CMENU 2.6.EXE file and since I cannot get the file in the first post to download, its the only one I have. But I am hesitant to run it without a confirmed MD5.

Can someone post an MD5 for version 2.6 EXE.

I have added a link to the current CMenu homepage in the 1st post so details of the MD5 etc can be viewed there.

Hi. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but, with Cmenu, the "more option" don't appear with the *.exe files, only when I right-clicked the folder that contain the *.exe. My OS is WinXP Pro modified with nLite

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update of my post

With Cmenu doesn't work, but works great with SendtoA3x... Thanks

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations

I sent a request to Kaspersky Virus Lab to check for being false positive.

Thank you

Edit:
I have been informed that the message is a warning only as the keywords in the description are "not a virus". The file that is being flagged is TheHook.dll which is used by AutoItMacroGenerator02.exe to enable the recording ability of the desktop shell. To the best of my knowledge, AutoItMacroGenerator02.exe is not using the TheHook.dll in a malicious manner. The warning is shown and the end user needs to decide whether to trust.

Hello,

This file is already detected by our extended bases as a potentially risk program.

The answer is relevant to the latest bases from update sources.

Your program uses a library which might be (or is) also used by malicious programs. As you see, the detection reads "not a virus", so it's just a warning. For instance RAdmin or mIRC are detected in a similiar way.

To avoid detection, consider moving the functions you need from the dll in question to the main executable
I have found a file which seems to be source code for that dll: http://basic-compile...rch/013507.html - hope that helps.

64 bit is not supported with the CMenu context menu extension AFAIK. SendToA3X may work fine on 64 bit as a 32 bit executable alone may function OK, though I have not tested myself.

There's an application called Open++. It can add as many entries as you want to your context menu. There are only a few default entries like copy path, command prompt or register dll but you can customize it with external programs of your choice.
It has a version for Windows x64 too.

I can't recommend it enough. It's one of my favorite apps.

SendToA3X is working on x64. Even fixed me up a context entry for easier access to the ID Installer function. Here it is if anyone wants it.

IdentifyInstaller_x64.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Identify Installer]
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SendToA3X\\SendToA3X.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Identify Installer\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SendToA3X\\SendToA3X.exe\" \"Compiled\\File_-_Identify_Installer.a3x\" %1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSI.Package\shell\Identify Installer]
"Icon"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SendToA3X\\SendToA3X.exe"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSI.Package\shell\Identify Installer\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\SendToA3X\\SendToA3X.exe\" \"Compiled\\File_-_Identify_Installer.a3x\" %1"


Both x86 and x64 included in the attach

Hi jamesbebby,

Sorry for the late reply. I have had no time to commit to this project. If or when is very much in doubt. That is the best answer that I can give at the moment.

Hi, Just wondering if you could share the commands that are use to open the 'Identify Installer'???

Just in the middle of making my own little context menu thingy.
Cheers, James

Hi jamesbebby,

If I were to open a cmd prompt at the current working directory of CMenu.exe, then I could type for example:
CMenu.exe identify CMenu.exe



Now you should get a Msgbox prompt about an attempt to scan CMenu.exe. I added the prompt to notify that CMenu.exe is a custom installer made from AutoIt3.

So the syntax is:
"path\to\cmenu.exe" identify "path\to\filename.exe"



where "path\to" is optional depending on current working directory. The "identify" parameter calls the Indentify Installer functionality within CMenu.exe. The Indentify Installer functionality then gets the "path\to\filename.exe" parameter as reference to perform a scan with PEiD and acts upon the result of the scan.

So if you were to add this as a data entry into the registry then you would use something like this:
"path\to\cmenu.exe" identify "%1"


where "path\to" is the absolute path to CMenu.exe.

Let me know if you have doubt about what I just explained above or any other questions that I may help you with. Good luck with your little context menu thingy.

Wicked! I would like to being it out of 'CMenu.exe' because as i just found out that everything linked with-in CMenu.

So whats the commands taken out with PEiD??? So its scans and show you those great boxes that you made up with the details of the switches [Hope you dont mind me using this part of your app???]
Cheers, James

jamesbebby,

It seems like you have not reviewed the source code to determine your questions? Please isolate CMenu.exe within a directory and then at a cmd prompt at that current working directory "CMenu.exe /extract" without the quotes. You will then see the source files extracted. Amongst these files will be a file named CMenu.au3. Read CMenu.au3 through any programming text editor and you may get a glimpse of the code that I use to automate PEiD as well as other tasks. I do not expect you to understand Autoit3 code if you have not learned it but I may hope that you may know some parameters given to Run() etc. and some of the switch cases used to get an idea of how I achieved this task. If you can understand just a little of what I have done then it may help by a large amount by what you wish to learn. I always will show my source code and retain the right to challenge those who try to hide it. I am more then happy to teach others to expand on my code as suitable for the benefit of everyone.

Now, for your 1st line, "that everything linked with-in CMenu" is true that all functions contained within the exe ... and just templates etc. are external.

The commands for PEiD used is:
PEiD.exe "path\to\filename.exe"



It seems that I did not use other parameters for PEiD.exe.

If you can improve on what I have done then I may praise your effort. I am not aware at the moment that I put any copyright license on CMenu but if it has then please respect. Due credit for effort is sufficient where appropriate. I like to share my efforts and hope to continue sharing my efforts.
