It's called "FileTypesMan" from NirSoft...
I'm familiar with FilesTypeMan: I use it to change the icons for my media files.
But I've never created and tested context menu commands: that was a good idea.
So I added a command for M3U files, using my BAT file (see above) in the command line.

When clicking on the new context menu entry in File Explorer, the BAT file does its job without a "pop-up screen" of the command window.
There's a quick "open and close" in the Taskbar, but that will never be avoided without different scripting techniques.

I can only conclude that you are doing something differently than I am.

And fyi, the batch file fails if Winamp is closed when it is executed. I haven't figured out why.
