How to search in Explorer for values within custom tags?

I'm currently ripping my CD collection using dbPoweramp which adds custom/non-standard tags to my wma and mp3 files.

I want to be able to use Windows Explorer to search for values in those MetaTags.

I've seen a few posts saying to put "tag:searchtext" or "tag:(searchtext)" but neither is working for me.

Running W764 with latest updates

Thanks--
Sam

Could you post a sample WMA or MP3 file? Please use a "rights-free" audio track. The sample will be used to replicate your issue. Thank you.
