It works fine when I start it from Windows Explorer either by clicking on the .exe or by clicking on a .lit book. Other open-with options I've added (Foxit, DJVu etc) all work fine. I've even re-installed MSReader.

I think I've had this working in the past - TBH I was surprised I didn't already have it as an option. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
When I tried to put msreader into Open With about 18 months ago I got the same behaviour. IIRC I've had problems putting an image and a text editor into the Open With plugin, but other programs are fine.

Never reported them because I could live without them - pressing 'o' and doing what I want from there is almost as easy.
