      • Console - execute the item specified via an argument passed to the Windows Console (aka Command Prompt or cmd.exe). This is ideal for launching batch files (e.g. .bat, .cmd, etc.)
        Note: The following syntax is used: cmd.exe /k "%PATH_TO_BINARY%" "%ARGUMENTS%"
      • Powershell - execute the item specified via an argument passed to Windows Powershell with common arguments and administrator privileges. This is ideal for launching Powershell scripts (e.g. .ps1, etc.)
        Note: The following syntax is used: c:\windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -ExecutionPolicy -NoProfile -File "%PATH_TO_BINARY%" "%ARGUMENTS%"

        Note: The following syntax is used: c:\windows\system32\mmc.exe "%PATH_TO_BINARY%"
      • Added Architecture option to control when a tool will appear or execute based on OS architecture. The following options are avaialble:
        • Any - Apepars and launches on both 64-Bit/x64 and 32-Bit/x86 versions of Windows
        • 64-Bit Only - Only appears and launches on 64-Bit/x64 versions of Windows
        • 32-Bit Only - Only appears and launches on 32-Bit/x86 versions of Windows
      • Added Alternate Icon option to specify a custom icon. By default, the icon included in the Path to Binary item is used for a MyTools item.
