I'm using windows 8.1, I have noted that under this version of OS the context menu doesn't work. To fix this I have set ARen to run as administrator. Now the context menu does work. But now the drag-and-drop feature doesn't work.

I have solved the issue it's just enough add a shortcut to ARen.exe in the SendTo menu:

"%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"

and all is working fine, without the need of the context-menu.

I am glad you found a solution that worked for you. But I am not sure it will work in all circumstances. Have you tried to use the SendTo solution with several thousand files? In my experience it does not work with a huge batch of files.

I don't use this feature with a huge number of files. For my needs it's enough.
