Window Explorer right-click context menu

I have a java application that I need to add to the right click context menu in windows explorer.  It has its own jar file and make file.  Right now it is command line not GUI.

You mean you want to add a short-cut to running a Java application in the Windows context-menu?

I guess you should ask this in the Windows TA. You'll probably need to create/ edit some registry values for adding a new short-cut there. Give a short-cut to the JAR file (and make sure its an executable JAR file with a Main-class defined, and that the default opening program for JAR files is javaw.exe).

I'm not hacking.  Its for my work.  Its a code generator that needs to be accessible in different directories.

I know, I said that to hooman
that site does not mean hacking in a bad way (unauthorized manner)
hack means: An inelegant and usually temporary solution to a problem.
