I use both 7-zip and Explorer++ quite a bit, but I can't seem to get Explorer++ to show the context menu items for 7-zip, like the windows explorer does? Am I missing something?

In windows explorer if I right click a file, or a dir, or multiple files/dirs then I get a 7-zip menu, but never in Explorer++.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, on two machines with this problem.

So what appears to fix it: ensure that you are using 64-bit versions of both 7-zip and Explorer++, then all is well.
