Merge VBL Files into Your Registry

 REGEDIT4[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.vbl]@="VisualBasic.VBLFile"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFile]@="Visual Basic Control License File"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileDefaultIcon]@="NOTEPAD.EXE,1"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshell][HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshelledit]@="&Edit"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshelleditcommand]@="NOTEPAD.EXE "%1""[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshellopen]@="Mer&ge"[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshellopencommand]@="regedit.exe "%1""[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshellprint][HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVisualBasic.VBLFileshellprintcommand]@="NOTEPAD.EXE /P "%1""
