C++ Customize Context Menus


I have been working in C++ Console applications (VC++ editor). Now, I wish to customize my context menus using Console application (not sure whether it is possible) or by using Windows Application.

Basically, I need to create a separator in the Right Click Context menus and a new menu item with some sub menu items in the context menu. Could any one update me a sample source code to accomplish my requirement with C++. For ex, while right click a folder a menu named 'Testing' should be available. And the menu 'Testing' has 2 sub menus 'Test1' and 'Test2'.

Also I need to add a overlay image for a particular folder. Is it possible with C++. If possible, pls let me know the sample source code.

If not, please update me is there any registry change to accomplish my requirements.

Thanks in Advance,
