I attempted installing to Program Files instead of the x86 program files directory, this did not solve the problem. I think the issue is that the shell extension is running from a DLL that does not have administrative access. I believe it to be NppShell_04.dll so if we figure out how to tell Windows 7 give that administrative access to run, then we are golden.
