Interestingly, I have surprisingly NO problem using the shell extension of MP3 Tag-studio in my own Win7 x64 environment. In fact while previously I had trouble under WinXP 32-bit with loss of the top few items (most notably "INSTALL") in the popup context menu when Tag-studio's "shell extension" was checked on, I have exactly the same other programs installed in my Win7 x64 world and I no longer have these problems.
In other words, Win7 x64 seems (for me, anyway) to be a bit "wiser" in determining exactly what items to present in the RMB popup menu list. So, for example, when right-clicking on an INF in Win7 I only see the appropriate items in the menu (including INSTALL, but NOT including MP3 Tag-Studio). And when right-clicking on an MP3 file I see the appropriate items for that file type... including MP3 Tag-Studio's item (which I can then get into and it works perfectly) but not INSTALL.
I had reported the shell extension problem years ago under WinXP, but I must say it does seem (for me anyway) to have resolved itself with no change to the application!
===> MP3 Tag-Studio 3.5 beta 20 works perfectly for me in my Win7 x64 environment, installed as however it got installed automatically.
NOTE: I do NOT have the "preserve dates on tagged/renamed files" checked, because I actually DO want to see the dates changed if I update the ID3 data. Actually, I would prefer that simply renaming the files does NOT change the date. So this desire would seem to be in conflict with the checkbox option offering. Anyway, just yesterday I had an opportunity to do a "mass rename from tag" (not individual file rename using F2), and surprisingly the file dates were retained! Actually this is just what I'd wanted to occur, but thought it would not happen because of the wording of that checkbox option.
So... does the checkbox option only affect F2 renames, whereas "mass rename from tag" does not change the date no matter what the checkbox option shows?
