Default menus are not supported for Context Menus (Popup)
This in a Warning EWI. The tool in this case has upgraded the PopupMenu command but there is a different behavior and this warning is provided so the user is notified and can take actions if necessary.
In VB6 the PopupMenu has the following syntax:
object.PopupMenu menuname, flags, x, y, boldcommand
The boldcommand parameter is used to specify the name of a menu control in the pop-up menu to display its caption in bold text. If omitted, no controls in the pop-up menu appear in bold.
However, in .NET this parameter is not available.
