    Unhappy Explorer context menu won't update from BC3. Windows version, 17440

    After installation on Win7 x64 over BC3, the Explorer context menu remains from BC3. No BC4 items are there. Even after tweaking context menu settings in options.
    Is this a known issue?

    To workaround, I went to the BC3 install dir and removed BCShellEx*.dll, then restarted explorer.

    @dd: same on my Windows machine.

    W7x64 fully updated.

    Another method of removing/enabling one shell extension or the other is to use the Options dialog, Startup section. In BC3, turn off "Include Beyond Compare in Explorer context menu", and in BC4 turn it on. Then restart and that should allow one or the other.

    The most recently installed should take precedence if both are enabled, but a restart might be needed.
