How to copy paths to clipboard from search results
Under Windows XP I used a program called Piky Basket which had a right-click feature that allowed me to copy the full paths of selected files to the clipboard. This feature worked on multiple files, even in search results from e.g. Windows' own search utility and e.g. Voidtools' Everything. I want to be able to do the same in Windows 7.
Sadly, Piky Basket does not work on my system (Win7, 64), and the version of Piky Basket that does work on my system doesn't have this feature anymore.
The built-in "Copy as path" in Windows does work on multiple files, but only if those files are all in the same folder (which is not the case in search results). The same applies to SendTo Toys -- can only copy multiple paths if they're all in the same folder.
Dengdun's OpenXX works fine on search results, but copies a maximum of 15 paths (why???).
Jarle Aase's CopyPath copies only one path at a time... and this applies to many of the nameless similar utilities floating about the web.
Ninotech Path Copy insists on installing the 32 bit version of it (even if I remove the previous version), and does not add anything to the context menu that I can see.
Any ideas about how I can copy full paths of files to the clipboard, even in search results?

It works for me, copies file and/or folder paths even if the results are on different drives.
