UEStudio failed to include anything in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID node of the registry.
Thus no 32 bit application using Explorer/IE functions would have UEStudio displayed in their right-click.
The most common place to see it is Common Dialogs.
Install UEStudio on Windows 64 bit version (XP, Vista, 7).
Start Internet Explorer (default should be normal/32 bit as Microsoft does not recommend and does not default to IE64) or Mozilla Firefox or any other application that is still 32 bit (a lot of development and graphics apps). Or a 32 bit Windows Explorer replacement such as Cubic Explorer, or just any other 32 bit application that calls standard Windows Dialogs or File Browse routines.
Select a file.
In the File Open dialog or file browser, browse to a file, right click and notice there is NO UEStudio OPTION!
The fix for UEStudio was to add the following registry entry (assumes install path is default):
WORKAROUND -- FIX:
- Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\IDM Computer Solutions\\UEStudio\\uesctmn.dll"
As you can see what was done there was to add a call under the Wow6432Node to the 32 bit DLL.
Now UEStudio options work and show in CE and other 32 bit applications which make calls through Explorer/IE and any other application that makes calls to Windows native 32 bit code while running Windows x64.
As such now Windows x64 would be fully supported on both the 32 bit and 64 bit code paths under Windows x64 (XP 64 bit, Vista 64 bit, 7 64 bit).
