    Thank you so much for this solution, I was trying myself for several months
    For those who are not familiar with command lines, regsvr32..etc please find attached a self exe doing it.
    This self exe is to use assuming you installed Agent Ransack in the default directory & your system drive is C:\

    I found this thread because I had the same issue, but the solution is a lot easier than registering dlls and all. It's the same as adding anything to the context menu for a folder.

    Here's the registry file to do it. Save this as a .reg file, and execute, or just manually add the stuff in using regedit.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Agent Ransack]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Agent Ransack\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mythicsoft\\Agent Ransack\\AgentRansack.exe\" -d \"%1\""

    Hi, just registered because I found this thread first while trying to solve the problem and now seem to have cracked it - all the above information is correct but the CLSID is missing from the registry when AgentRansack is installed. I made of a copy of the CLSID from a Win 7 32 bit PC and adjusted the "Program Files" line to reflect 64 bit compatibility. So - add the following to the registry (copy/paste it into Notepad and save as "RansackContext.reg", double click the resulting file to merge it for those that may not know how);


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}]
    @="AgentRan_ShellExt Class"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}\InprocServer32]
    @="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Mythicsoft\\Agent Ransack\\arshellext.dll"
    "ThreadingModel"="Apartment"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}\ProgID]
    @="AgentRansackShellExt.AgentRan_ShellExt.1"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}\Programmable]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}\TypeLib]
    @="{9B4BB56E-2169-4539-8125-5056B41473BB}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6646F704-1528-4B5C-BAB7-176FA4B5F80A}\VersionIndependentProgID]
    @="AgentRansackShellExt.AgentRan_ShellExt"


    and you'll have a context menu entry again. It may be necessary to register the .dll with Windows in the manner described above too - I didn't but things seem to work OK.

    Even with W7's much better search I still use Agent Ransack all the time...

    Hi ran across this thread (second time actually).....just thought i would let everyone with Windows 7 64-bit know that MythicSoft has updated Agent Ransack and there is now a 64-bit edition available. After installing it, I had the familiar context menu item. I'm glad they did it, I was going through withdrawals and was about to take a leap into hacking the registry and lo and behold, I saw they released Agent Ransack 64-bit yesterday! Cool.
