Afaik this is not possible because Setup tries to register the Shell extension DLLs into the system part of the registry.

But why should this part be necessary ? What feature does this provide ? Maybe I don't need it... couldn't I at least recompile the project without this feature ? – BrittanyS Apr 18 '13 at 4:28
Or maybe I could just not use the setup, and use only the executables, in a portable fashion ? Where can I get the executables ? Like if I only want tortoisediff, for example. – BrittanyS Apr 18 '13 at 4:34
