Fixed: explorer context menu

The checkbox "add to explorer context menu" does not work. It disappears when I return to the menu and nothing appears when I right click on a file in Explorer.
I use Windows 8.1 pro and HxD

Start HxD as administrator once, before clicking the option. Then you can start it as normal user again.

In HxD 2.0 this is more comfortable.

You can easily change the explorer context menu from the options window now, no matter if you are currently running HxD as administrator or not. Changes are applied immediately when the customize button was pressed. Administrator privileges will be requested on demand (UAC under Vista and up), if they are not available already.

This simplifies the procedure and there are no more surprises because of unapplied changes to the explorer context menu.
