It seems that the only beta available for property handler was removed :/
See this forum for further discussion. I found nothing that could make explorer read the tags.

Yes, there was a FLAC Property Handler for Explorer located at http://castlemadeofsand.wordpress.com, but as you can see the author has removed his blog, for no apparent reason. Luckily, the Property Handler can still be downloaded from Megaupload.

I am installing wmp tag plus right now, you can find the link in post #1

Now wmp should read your tags.

Cheers
What I need is for *Explorer* to read and write flac tags. WMP Tag won't do it, neither will Media Foundation FLAC Codec, and the way dbPowerAmp does it, in my opinion, is no good - adding two tabs to the Explorer Properties dialog when you can do it right within the Properties>Details tab with mp3. Also, dbPowerAmp's Install program looks like it was programmed with a kit. Very amateurish.

If Microsoft could figure a way to make money off flac, I'm sure they'd implement it right away. But the Party Line is that flac is a "minority" format.

Maybe somebody out there can program a properties handler worthy of the name; I sure as hell can't and dbPowerAmp botched it.
lol ya I tell you it's something else. Microsoft should just get off the pot and just do it. I agree with Lestrad I don't like dbpoweramp crappy way because I don't want to install an app just for tags to show up. I've looked and looked for a simple way to no avail, I believe there enough flac users to have it implemented myself..

Thank you for that last link. I'm tempted to go around posting this to as many places as I can find, since it took me a good few hours to come across this site!
