WINDOWS: Add a script to right-click mouse menu

Yup that's right. I'm lazy like that.

I once created a Menu script in windows that sets the PS_HOME and PS_CFG_HOME variables automatically and calls the psadmin executable. This is useful if you have a multiple PS_HOME installation in one windows server (usually the setup for non-production environments.)

Instead of saving the file to my desktop, I added it to the right-click menu of my mouse so I wouldn't have to double click on the file.heh.

Here's how I did it:

Note: You can change the value of those in red font.

1. Open a new notepad and save with a .reg extension.
2. Paste the following lines and edit as appropriate (make sure the script location has double slash):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="MENU script"


3. Save the .reg file then double click on it to add your script.
