1. It would be good to have an option to change "Open with AkelPad" text – to translate it and add access key (e.g. "Open with &AkelPad").
2. This context menu item breaks built-in style on Windows 7 (used x86 version):

There's a program called Open++ that you can use for adding anything as a shell extension. Very good and portable. Also File Menu Tools is excellent but not as light weight as Open++ which is just over 100KB when UPX'd.

Ha! Consuming less HDD space (which is VERY large currently) while consuming more RAM and CPU (which are quite large too but are wasted by Windows 7, tons of services, browsers and so on).

I have write all the visable string to the resource file. We can compile the resource as a divided dll. But how do I decided to load which one DLL?

But it's seems that this DLL dosn't open-sourced.

No, I'm about highlighting under cursor for menus and menu items.
You probably use some wrong (obsolete?) way to add icon.

I have fixed this issue.
You said " add access key (e.g. "Open with &AkelPad"). ", I have add the functionality, but it can not appear in win 7/8. Can you give any advice.

By default access keys are visible only if menu is opened using keyboard.
On Windows 7 this can be configured in
Панель управления\Специальные возможности\Центр специальных возможностей\Облегчение работы с клавиатурой
(I don't have English version, this is about "keyboard" and "accessibility" in Control panel.)

Why in the icon size 64x64? It is necessary, or can leave only 16x16?
