We are still not sure that we understand what exactly the problem is. The link you have posted in your previous post (http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radtreeview-how-to-add-context-menu.html
) was for WPF whereas your forum thread is for Silverlight. Which exactly is your target platform since there are differences between using context menu in Silverlight and WPF?
Additionally, if you are targeting WPF and you have added context menu to your HierarchicalDataTemplate, there should be no reason to see a context menu appearing if the treeview is empty. Please take a look at the attached sample project.
Let us know how we can be of further reference.
