    Are you running the latest release of BC4 (4.1.3)? If not, please update to the latest release from our website or the Help menu -> Check for Updates. We disabled shell extension support for .net dlls due to crashes when called from our Explorer shortcut. A workaround is to define an Open With to open an Explorer window to the selected target, then use the Explorer context menu.
