What does the Right Click Tools Repair option do?

The repair option for Right Click Tools runs the backed up installer, and this installer then compares the local installation with its manifest and replaces missing or corrupted files/registry keys/dll registrations.

When issues arise, such as Right Click Tools being grayed out and unavailable or the RCT not appearing in the Configuration Manager console, the repair option can be helpful. Additionally, the RCT installer offers an uninstall option that completely wipes out the installation. Use the uninstall and reinstall options only if the repair doesn’t resolve the problem.

Note: The RCT repair option requires the original RCT installer. If you have deleted the Right Click Tools installer, I recommend downloading it from Recast Portal.
