With Notepad++ installed, I get an error message in Total Commander ("OLE2 command failed! Either your OLE2 subsystem is damaged, or you have installed a shell extension which is incompatible with Total Commander!") respectively in Windows Explorer (Dr Watson) when I select several files, right-click on them and choose an option from the context menu (i.e. "Play in foobar2000"). I have to use a tool like "ShellExView" ( to deactivate the "Notepad++ Shell Extension" in order to get the context menu working again.

Is this a bug or a feature?

OS: Windows XP Professional SP2
