Explorer Shell Context (Right-click) Menu in Playlist that works for Windows 7

Is there a plugin or software like this: "Explorer Context Menu - Puts the explorer shell context (right-click) menu into the playlist" http://www.winamp.com/plugin/explore...xt-menu/139313 that works for Windows 7?

I was using this plugin in the same PC back when it had Windows XP installed. When I installed Windows 7 and then tried this plugin with Winamp, the plugin didn't work (the explorer menu doesn't appear when you right-click in the playlist).

Edit: I am using 32-bit Windows 7.

is probably a 32-bit / 64-bit incompatibility or the plug-in just doesn't like Win7. alas as the plug-in appears to be no longer developed i don't think there's much chance of getting a working solution and i'm not aware of any alternative plug-ins which do the same.

It was working on Windows 7 64bits

I had this plugin working on Windows 7 64 bit. But now after reinstalling Windows it does not work and does not show up in General Purpose plugins.
I desperately need that feature and I don't know why it is not included by default in Winamp.
Any help will be very appreciated.

Yes, this plug in is very much needed on Winamp, or as built-in feature from Winamp.

You must remember what you did to make this work. I terribly miss this feature.

I too used this indispensable plug-in for many years and since upgrading to win7 64 it worked for a while and then on a reinstall I could install it but it never appeared when I right clicked in the play list. After searching for many, many hours I finally came across a new program that works even better "Find File on Disk v3.0.3" which can be downloaded separately or is included in the Winamp Essentials Pack v5.62. I'm sure this will help lots of folks that have felt the loss of this plug-in. Peace!

heh, that's funny since that plug-in pre-dates the one this thread is about.

I think the latest ver of the context menu plug-in was .03 which was updated last in 2006 while the similar find file on disk plug-in, as you noted has been around just as long, it has a more recent win7 64 compatible update which will satisfy most users longing for that particular functionality.

Forgot about this thread. Thanks for this! It's not exactly like Explorer Shell Context Menu (it opens the selected file's folder, which will then allow you to use Explorer's context menu), but is a very good alternative.

Link to the Find File on Disk plugin for the lazy: http://nunzioweb.com/daz/ffod.html

an extremely useful feature that ive used for years, unfortunately doesnt work on win7 64bit.
missing this badly.
the ctrl+f (show in explorer/find on disk) only partially solves the problem because the plugin used to make it possible to quicky work file after file in playlist. one extra perk is quick access to the "open with" submenu, very useful when using winamp for file selection while working in different DAWs.

im not saying i know anything about programming but it seems to me this shouldnt be hard to accomplish as the right-click menu already contains the direct link to the physical file ("find files on disk"). so i guess the problem is with the re-made windows explorer?
