Windows file context menu options?

Post by Time4Tea » Wed Aug 04, 2021 9:18 pm

I have a question: for my work I need to convert a proprietary image file format (.pcoraw) for a high-speed camera into something more standard (jpg, tiff, etc) that I can work with. The camera manufacturer provides this file conversion tool for use with Windows. However, according to the manual, it seems that it does not provide a .exe executable app - it seems to only work via the context menu when you right-click on a file with that extension in Windows. The installer seemed to run ok in Wine, but the installation directory seems to just contain some DLL libraries, which I assume get called by the Windows file explorer on a right-click event.

Is there any graphical environment in Wine that would allow me to access that contextual right-click functionality? I'm guessing the answer is probably no, but thought I'd at least check.
