Right click "Edit with PowerShell Studio" menu option missin

Post by sjkoehler122 »

Hi -

My company just purchased a couple PowerShell Studio 2014 licenses to test and certify the product for our environment. In our testing, I realized that the menu option "Edit with PowerShell Studio" when right clicking on a .ps1 file in Windows Explorer does not exist. Interestingly, when I install PrimalScript afterwards, with only the bare minimum options checked, I not only properly get an "Edit with PrimalScript" right click menu, but I also get the "Edit with PowerShell Studio" right click option as well.

Here's the relevant details, please let me know if there's anything more I can provide:
  • PowerShell Studio 2014 4.1.71 x64
    PrimalScript 2014 7.0.42 x64
    Windows 7 SP1 x64
Screen shot of missing menu option, after just bare PowerShell Studio 2014 install:

Screen shot of no-longer-missing menu option after installing PrimalScript 2014:

Hi, we can't approve this for purchase for our company until we get past this issue. Can anyone advice?

Sorry for the delay. I did not see this post.

It is possible that the PowerShell Script files did not have their perceived type set to Text.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ps1

PrimalScript installer set it to Text during install. We will look at doing the same with PowerShell Studio.

Thank you for reporting the issue.
