Windows XP Tweak Not Working

I created my own file type (.pro) and I use it allot on my computer. Is there any way to add it to the new menu (Right click on desktop, new, my file). I already tried going to regedit. I created a key in the file type called ShellNew and created a string called NullFile, but that doesn't work. Can anyone help me?

This has to be done in an elaborate way but its easy.

First create a blank file through the application whose filetype you want to add in the right click menu.Save it in the C:\Windows\ShellNew folder with any name.

Then Go to START-->RUN type REGEDIT

here u ll find a folder named "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT"
click on the '+' sign to its left. You will have a long list of all extensions available in your system. Select the extension of your file( For example if you want a photoshop file, Your extension is .psd). Once you have selected your extension, right click on that and click on New--> Key. This will get you a new key. Rename it to "ShellNew". Right click on "ShellNew" and select New-->String Value. This will create a new string value on the right pane.

Rename that string value as "FileName". Double click on this and change the Value Data to the path and the filename
(Eg: C:\Windows\ShellNew\new.psd). Click OK and press F5. U r Done. Restart ur system to see your new enlisted item

This should work.
