    You'll want to mess with the registry for that, make sure anything you can write can be undone for test/sanity (so you don't ruin your reg with bad info). Also a quick google for "c# write context menu like winrar" all of the top 4 do what you ask

    You'll have more luck on the programming/web dev board as suggested

    I'm not just giving you the code, a simple google search does that for you as I said previously.

    You edit the registry to add a context action for your app that appears in the menu. If you need to ask this I suggest you read up on context menus first before starting the programming side of it so you have an understanding of what it is you need to do.

    C++ translated to C# quite well as there is no need for explicit constructors/desctructors and GC is managed for you (but you can explicitly call it). You will likely need .Net components which should be accessible in C++

    Everything you need to know to add a shell extension. (something that when you right click on a file in windows explorer, will show some stuff).

    http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...g-Shell-Extens

    Also you have the official documentation here:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)
