The right click context menu is unavailable in Windows explorer on a 64-bit windows 7 install.. and I guess on all 64-bit windows installs. This is presumably because Windows Explorer is a 64-bit application...

If it's any help the Vim64 port seems to have fixed it. See http://code.google.com/p/vim-win3264/wiki/Win64Binaries

Thanks.

    Thanks for the report. I don't have access to win7 yet, so am unable to test. This feature does work under XP x64, there must have been some registry layout changes under win7.

    I'll update this bug report when I can do some testing on win7.

    I have the menu item in W764, but it's essentially useless because rename actions require admin access and admin users don't have access to system admin actions without a prompt now. Metamorphose needs to be configure to prompt somehow.
