    Interesting. Show what you have for the "RunAs" key to see if it's all there.

    The Install item on the context menu now shows up. Turns out, after trying it successfully on a couple other computers, that the Default Programs .cab association was wrong, deleted it and now the Install works.

    Know this is an old thread, but just hit same problem Berton had. With the file association. The culprit, in my case, is the ever-popular 7-Zip. It likes to take control of .cab, .iso, and just about anything that is extractable. So Install context doesn't show, unless you change .cab back to Explorer. Same with the Mount command for ISO's. Probably others. WinRAR may do the same, and others....not sure.

    No problem here, just wanted to mention it while it was on my mind. Maybe clear up a mystery for someone else.

    Cheers!

    No Dick WinRAR is fine but you do have to select the default associations you want, don't know if it's the same with 7-zip. I bought a full license for WinRAR years ago so never bother with anything else.

    Thank you, Andy. Wow, that was from 2 weeks ago! Said I wasn't sure about WINRAR, not that it did.
