UltraEdit 32 Explorer Integration in Vista

Looks like Vista broke the integration of UltraEdit in the shell (even with latest version 13.00), without whom life is not worth living. Seriously, not being able to Edit/HexEdit ANY file with a right click really makes life unbearable.

Thankfully, other people have figured out how to do it, and it's really simple:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\UltraEdit 32]
@="UltraEdit"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\UltraEdit 32\command
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\IDM Computer Solutions\\UltraEdit-32\\uedit32.exe\" \"%1\""


(NB:If you create these keys manually, @ is the "(Default)" key in Regedit, and both keys are String values. Of course, quotes don't need to be escaped then)
