Hey @meisterleise! Thanks for reporting!

Context menu suffered some changes for 2.4 that require a new Finder extension to be installed replacing the old one.

There might be an issue on doing it so at runtime without a reboot ( could you try that?

If that doesn't work out, try killing the extension directly from the "Activity Monitor" and uninstalling (move it to the trash) and reinstall 2.4.
