I have the same problem. The "Enable advanced menu" is disabled.

In case you didn't already figure it out, I also had this issue (and even raised a bug for it) but turns out I'd installed the 32-bit version. Spotted there was also a 64-bit ("x64") setup.exe on http://winmerge.org/downloads/ (just not highlighted as the default download). When I installed that instead, the checkboxes on the 'Shell Integration' options page were no longer disabled, and when "Enable advanced menu" is ticked the 'Compare' options appear on my Explorer context menus - yay!
