I installed the Power Tools for VS 2010 on my laptop running Win7. Sure enough, my Windows Explorer is now showing the overlay icons for TFS and I can access TFS features from its context menu.
But when I open an Open File dialog in an application, or see any other screen showing a browsable folder/file interface, I see neither the overlay icons nor the context menu extension. I did see those in Windows XP, and it's a major hassle for me that I now don't: I edit my files in a separate application (XMetaL) and I'd like to check out and check in without having to switch apps. Running XMetaL in admin mode doesn't change anything.
Can anyone tell me if I can fix this? Is this a limitation in Windows 7?
Thanks for your help,

Have same problem here.
Have checked that registry -
I have 12 sub-folders there. Is it an issue ?
