    Exclamation Version 23-10-10 no longer shows dbPoweramp contect menus (Windows 11 23H2)

    Previous version seemed to develop an issue with the Windows 11 new file explorer context menus having two tiers "dBpoweramp... / dBpoweramp... / Convert...."

    Installed the new version 23-10-10 and now NONE of the dBpoweramp menus are showing correctly on the Windows 11 explorer context menu (they are on the Show More Options menu).

    In case it makes a difference, this is running on Windows 11 Pro 23H2 with Moment 4.

    All the other programs that I have that support the new Windows 11 context menu are continuing to work fine (e.g. FileMenu Tools, Mp3Tag, PowerArchiver...).

    This is happening on two machines where I have dBpoweramp installed (have a 5 PC licence).

    Also tested a fresh install in Windows Sandbox and the same issue as well, so looks like 23-10-10 has regressed the support for Windows 11 context menus --- OR there is an incompatibility between dBpoweramp's Windows 11 context menu setup and the updated version of File Explorer that is part of Moment 4/23H2.

    Uninstall dBpoweramp, full reboot of Windows, then reinstall dBpoweramp.

    Are you running any security software?

    Works here - Windows 11, version 10.0.22621.2428

    Did you make a fresh install or upgarde previous dBpoweramp version? (either way works here)

    Are Right Click Menu options enabled in dBpoweramp Advanced Settings?

    Update: problem reproduced, on Windows 11 10.0.22000.2538 (fresh virtual machine)
    Indeed previous dBpoweramp release shows context menus while latest does not.
    Investigating.

    Please open administrator command prompt and enter these exact commands:

    Code:
    cd "C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp"
    fooPackageOps.exe "C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp" dMCExplorerCommand.msix Illustrate.dBpoweramp.Win11Shell_s6r0h5jr5vt82
    This should register the missing shell extension and make context menus appear. We're still investigating why it isn't being done by the installer in some cases.

    Thanks, glad you were able to reproduce and have fixed it in the next update.
    And that workaround fixed it for me as well (had to restart Explorer for it to pick it up correctly).
