I re-installed SH5 and I am now running it on a Win7 64bit system. In my game folder I can see the JSGME and MODS Folder. I have about 20 active now according to the JSGME. The game however is appearing as stock with no mods applied.

You might want to try re-installing JSGME, even though it looks like it is there and see if that gets it to work right.

Re-installed JSGME and still have the problem. The JSGME located in th x86 program file folder has the MOD folder also. I am able to download mods, copy them from my download folder, paste and upzip them in the MOD Folder. I open the JSGME in the game folder and the mods are there. I activate them and start the game. No mods viewable.
I remember a while ago reading something about the 64bit system and Window 7 protection with folders located in the x86 program files. I had to move my Microsoft FSX to the hard drive to get mods to work. Could this be the same problem? I know that SH5 will not install into the hard drive but is there a work around? Right now I am still dealing with the non-playable vanilla version.

You could try running JSGME (and possible the game itself) as Administrator. That might get around the permissions issues. Basically no game where you need to change files should ever be installed under Program Files anymore.
Worst case scenario just move your MODS folder to a scratch folder first then uninstall everything. Reinstall to C:\SH5 or something similar. Install JSGME to C:\SH5. Then run the JSGME under C:\SH5 directly. That'll recreate the C:\SH5\MODS folder for you. Close JSGME, move the mod folders from your backed up MODS folder into the new MODS folder, reenable everything and enjoy.

Not too worried about the mod folder as I have just recently re-installed the game after 2 years. A short time back I tried to install the game directly into the C drive but it wouldn't let me. I will give a go at re-installation.

You might even be able to just move the install folder out of Program Files.
