macOS Finder extension is not working

Expected behaviour

There should be a context menu (right click) item for owncloud in the Finder application

Actual behaviour

There is not any owncloud button/item/anything in Finder.

ownCloud Extensions is running (always multiple instances):

I tried quitting owncloud, force-quitting all instances of ownCloud Extensions, uninstalling (by deleting /Applications/owncloud.app), then reinstalling. Nothing changed.

Client configuration

Client version: 2.6.1

Operating system: macOS 10.14.6

OS language: English

Installation path of client: /Applications

Here you might find some hints how to debug:

Thank you @michaelstingl

I’m no developer, but I just did the following steps and the Finder menu appears to be working:

• created the directory client using git clone https://github.com/owncloud/client.git
• opened the file client/shell_integration/MacOSX/OwnCloud.xcworkspace in Xcode
• pressed the play button. Some error/warning messages were displayed in Xcode
• closed and reopened the regular ownCloud app from my Applications folder

EDIT:
This solution only works so long as Xcode is still open.
Is there a way to keep the finder extension working and close Xcode?
