Shell Menu "Add Contents to VIPM Library" on .vip files

Question

 It would also be nice to have the shell menu option "Add to VIPM Library." on *.vip files and not only on *.vipc files.

This way *.vip files can be added to the VIPM library from the windows explorer without having to install them.

Is this going to be in the next VIPM version?

This is in currently in progress. If you're in the VIPM 2020 Beta you can help us test it, when it's ready.

I had tested it in the Community version of VIPM and that works very well.
But now I notice that it doesn't work in the Free version. It gives a dialog that says "This feature of the VIPM API does not function with the Free version of VIPM."
Is this intended or a bug? Because I would expect that a shell menu just works no mather which version I installed (or that it wouldn't be available if I can't use it).
In VIPM 2019 I could "Add Contents to VIPM Library" for a vipc file in the free version but in 2020.1 this also gives this pop-up. So it looks like there is no way to add a package to the library without installing it in the free version anymore. I like to have (all) packages added to the library and then apply a small vipc to switch between different projects.
