The Right-click Execute plugin for MacroView DMS allows you to add a custom function to the right-click menu in Browse and Favorites mode that will pass the URL of the selected file to any application.
How it works
When the user right-clicks on a file in MacroView DMS an additional menu option is displayed immediately below the Open Read Only option.
The name of this option can be configured via the user registry by updating the MenuLabel key to display whatever text is required.
The option will only be enabled when:
- a single file of a configured file type is selected
- the configured executable file exists
When the option is selected, DMS will pass the URL for the selected file to the configured application.
Close Microsoft Outlook, DMS Explorer (if applicable) and the MacroView DMS Local Service then download and run the Right-click Execute installer that corresponds with your installation of Windows.

You can specify the right-click menu option text, the path of the executable to be run when the option is selected and the file types that the executable supports in the following registry values.
The example below illustrates using the execute plugin to open '.txt' files in Notepad++. Note how we have specified the ValidExtension as '.txt' and the ApplicationPath as 'C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe'.
If you wish to specify more than one file type it should be separated by a comma.
