Problem with install the program under Win 7, under Win XP it is function OK.

Dear experts!

I have been used from more than 2 years a small free program with name MPEG2 Properties which after install add a popup menu when I click over .mpg files. Look attached picture.

 Problem is that under Win 7 this menu doesn’t appears. Install do not produce error and all is looking fine, but menu is missing. I believe this is due to some of new added security, so my question is what to change in install procedure to be able to see this popup menu under Win 7 ?

Installation procedure is to unzip programs and to start .bat file.

You can download MPEG2Properties program from here:

1. running regsvr32.exe on this dll fails in windows 7 unless you run it from elevated prompt.

2. the attached file puts the same information as regsvr32 in the registry, and then the entry does appear in the context menu; however, invoking it in Win7 has no effect at all. Quite likely because the dll itself is doing something that win7 thinks is dangerous, and/or the dll is not signed, etc.

3. Then once I ran media player in win7, the extension disappeared from the context menu; this because media player inserted PersistentHandler key into .mpg, so it intercepts everything. I'm sure there's a way to overcome it, but it's yet to be found.

All this means that however useful this extension is, it's probably incompatible with Windows 7, and the author needs to address that.  <sarcasm>The good news is that all these problems are certainly due to the effort to better protect us, so even though the good stuff stops working, we can enjoy the safety from the threats we did not even know ever existed.</sarcasm>
