  • unfo .inf installation form this site

    Hi peoplez,

    I found the article add_command_prompt_here_shortcut_to_windows_explor er.htm on this site with google and was dumb enough to install the doshere.inf file on a win7 machine.
    There appears a open command line here option in the right click context menu, but it does not work.
    In the meantime I found the shift-rightclick option that does what I need.

    How do I get rid of the non-working context item?

    Kind regards,

    Delete it via 'Uninstall or change a program' /Select: "Command Prompt Here PowerToy" (it should be in the list). Alternatively, you can also run this command instead:
    rundll32.exe syssetup.dll,SetupInfObjectInstallAction DefaultUninstall 132 C:\WINDOWS\INF\DosHere.inf

    If that didn't work then try removing it this way -> From an CommandPrompt with elevated permissions run the below 4 command-lines,
    Reg.exe DELETE HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\DosHere /f
    Reg.exe DELETE HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\Shell\DosHere /f
    Reg.exe DELETE HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\DosHere /f
    ERASE /F "%SystemRoot%\INF\DosHere.???"
    Alternatively, search the registry for "DosHere" delete manually the keys what were added by the installation.

      okay thanks.
      I had to do it the regedit way, but it is gone now.

      Cheers, I owe you a beer!
