I'm not really understanding what you mean by getting them to work with explorer...
Could you like describe a scenario or something so I get a better picture here?

Like This !

On the pictures you can see the flac files have no info showing while the .mp3 have the info, even though the flac files have been tagged by MP3tag and on another time WMP its self

The answer is no it won't because flac is a lossless format where the tags don't show in explorer because it's simply not supported I have thousands of flac files all properly tagged and none show in explorer but they will show up in supported media players that handle the flac format such as foobar and such.

You could try this registry hack to show the tags:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAssociations\.flac]
"InfoTip"="prop:System.ItemType;System.Size;System.Music.Artist;System.Media.Duration;System.OfflineAvailability"
"ExtendedTileInfo"="prop:System.ItemType;System.Size;System.Music.Artist;System.Media.Duration;System.OfflineAvailability"
"FullDetails"="prop:System.PropGroup.Description;System.Title;System.Media.SubTitle;System.Rating;System.Comment;System.PropGroup.Media;System.Music.Artist;System.Music.AlbumArtist;System.Music.AlbumTitle;System.Media.Year;System.Music.TrackNumber;System.Music.Genre;System.Media.Duration;System.PropGroup.Audio;System.Audio.EncodingBitrate;System.PropGroup.Origin;System.Media.Publisher;System.Media.EncodedBy;System.Media.AuthorUrl;System.Copyright;System.PropGroup.Content;System.ParentalRatingReason;System.Music.Composer;System.Music.Conductor;System.Music.ContentGroupDescription;System.Music.Mood;System.Music.PartOfSet;System.Music.InitialKey;System.Music.BeatsPerMinute;System.DRM.IsProtected;System.Music.IsCompilation;System.PropGroup.FileSystem;System.ItemNameDisplay;System.ItemType;System.ItemFolderPathDisplay;System.DateCreated;System.DateModified;System.Size;System.FileAttributes;System.OfflineAvailability;System.OfflineStatus;System.SharedWith;System.FileOwner;System.ComputerName"
"PreviewDetails"="prop:System.Music.Artist;System.Music.AlbumTitle;System.Music.Genre;*System.Media.Duration;System.Rating;System.Media.Year;*System.Size;System.Music.TrackNumber;System.Music.AlbumArtist;System.Title;*System.Audio.EncodingBitrate;*System.DateModified;*System.OfflineAvailability;*System.OfflineStatus;*System.DateCreated;*System.SharedWith"


simply copy and paste this code into a text file and rename the extension to .reg and run it. Hope it helps...

If this doesn't work then the only program I believe you could try is dbpoweramp. You'll have to go to their website and find out more about it..

Woh wow, lets not get too exited on those reg hacks/ tweaks

No disrespect, but can you provide proof that it works, also i really appreciate your contribution and will be sure to try it on a VM machine soon, in the mean time is there any more solutions that will not potentially mess up my pc.

Again no disrespect ( i have no idea why i am writing like this its 1 am and i bored)
But Am uncomfortable with reg edits unless i have prof from more than 3 people along with official recognition. E.G the change you login background. with the change the value of OEMBackground from 0 to 1 that i can do but the above is you know (risky)

Reg hack does not work (it breaks) :P

Seriously, nice effort for from your part providing the code but it does not work
