I've just switched to Windows 7 and installed the latest development build v2.44h with full settings, e.g. includes the windows context menu.
The context menu works fine when right clicking a single mp3. i.e. right click, and i have an option called 'mp3tag'. If I choose this it loads up mp3tag and loads the mp3 into the program.
Infact, this works if i select up to and including 15 mp3's. However once I select 16 or more mp3's, the right click context menu for 'mp3tag' no longer appears.
This was not the case under XP where I could load as many mp3s as I chose using the right click context menu - in fact mp3tag used to display a warning if I selected a large number, indicating it might take some time, but it always worked perfectly.
Perhaps there have been some changes in the way the Windows 7 registry works for context menus?
Other context menu specific items, e.g. Anti Virus scan etc work when selecting more than 15 files, so I think there must be a way around it.
Dano is right, it's normal behaviour on Windows 7 (and Vista).
I'm thinking about writing a dedicated shell extension for one of the next releases (definitely not the upcoming release) to overcome this limitation (and several other problems of the current approach).
hi, I also have problem with Win7 context menu integration - but in my case the mp3tag does not appear at all in the shell (however, I am 100% sure I have chosen this option while installing). I run Win 7 Professional, x64 version.
