Add right-click entry in Windows Explorer for custom Acrobat action

Hi,

I created a custom action which executes a javascript script on selected files.

Rather than starting the action from Acrobat and selecting the files, I would like to select them in Windows Explorer and launch the action through a context menu item (like we do with the default "Combine files" item).

Is it possible to create a right-click menu entry which tells Acrobat to use the selected files for a given custom action?


Thank you in advance for your help.

Not with only Acrobat, no.

However, there are some nice automation tools for Windows that you could use to bridge the gap…

Thank you very much... if you have any suggestion which tools to use for this specific purpose I'd be glad to know. I found tools which offer their own automation processes but none that can connect to existing action within Acrobat (one allows to execute actions from .bat files but is very expensive and does not solve the context menu question as such).
