Windows PowerToys PowerRename

I am a long time registered user and this is the first time I've come across something like this.

The current version of Windows PowerToys contains a good file renamer (yes, I know there is a basic one in Salamander). It is not a stand-alone program, but a dll accessed from the Explorer context menu. For whatever reason, while it appears in the context menu within Salamander, it does not launch. It works fine in Explorer, even in other third-party file managers like MultiCommander and TotalCommander (tried the just to see), so I can't think of a reason it doesn't launch you yours.

Is that a Win10 only item?
it appears in the context menu within Salamander
(Wouldn't think this would be the issue, but) does bitness make a difference?
As in does it work in Salamander x64 & not in Salamander x86 (or vice-versa)?

Yes, it is a Windows 10 item. Actually it's a third-party open source app. Technically still pre-release. https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys/releases

Everything I've run it with, including Salamander, has been 64-bit.
