What garbage! Just create two applescripts to do the same thing for free! Here's the code:
Filename: "Hide Selected File Extensions"
Code:
tell application "Finder"
set the selection_list to selection
if (count of selection_list) < 1 then
return
else
repeat with the_item in selection_list
set the extension_state to get extension hidden of the_item
if the extension_state is not true then
set the extension hidden of the_item to true
end if
end repeat
end if
end tell

repeat with the_item in selection_list
set the extension_state to get extension hidden of the_item
if the extension_state is true then
set the extension hidden of the_item to false
end if
end repeat
end if
end tell

Just put both scripts in your "~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Finder" folder and enable the script menu. Done.

Want a context menu? Create and Automator plug-in.

1. Open Automator.
2. Create a one-step workflow using the "Run Applescript" action with the previous code I posted.
3. Click "Save as plugin..." from the File menu and save as a Finder plug-in.
4. Done.
