Stroke a path in Photoshop CS5


I have created a path as a vector mask in a layer. I'd Like to create a stroke path of this same path but whatever I do the 'Stroke Path...' option in the drop-down menu of Paths is greyed out.

Please, please can someone tell me how to a stroke of a path, as a path. Using stroke as a Layer Style is not what I am after.

When adding a stroke to a path, you'll need to have a standard layer (or background) active. As Adobe say: "You cannot stroke a path when a mask, text, fill, adjustment, or Smart Object layer is active". I'm guessing that your vector mask is active when you're trying to add the stroke. You may need to use another layer in order to create the stroke.
