File Comparison Option not showing in VS2008

description

After execution of the MSI and subsequent attempts to fix with the "devenv.exe /resetaddin VisualStudioComparisonTools.Connect" command there are certain options that still are not available.

Copying text and selecting text in a text editor window will show the compare with clipboard option. This is the function I was most interested in and it works a treat.

However, in the Solution Explorer, when I select two files and right click there is no option to compare them. Same goes for folder comparison.

I have multiple versions of VS installed. This case is in VS2008, here is the About>Copy Info:
