Where is the old DNG codec for Win Vista (32bit)? May 2010, MS had this URL http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/DNG_Codec for a Vista codec, but this is Win 7 only now.
I'm trying to see thumbnails of .DNG files in Windows Explorer. I could cough up some hard earned cash for a third party product that does everything, but actually I just want to add the ability to view DNG files. Anyone???
I don't think the DNG codec can display thumbs of the newer v1.4 DNGs - codec only supports up to 1.3, unless it's been recently updated.
If you do get to coughing, this is decent medicine at $14.95: http://www.fastpictureviewer.com/codecs/
One thing I like is that they know how to interpret layered Photoshop documents saved with Maximize Compatibility set to OFF. Another is that they understand color-management.
Only thing I wish they would do better is provide thumbnails for PSB files, which they currently do not do. I have requested that support; we'll see if they come through.
I have no connection with that product other than to say I purchased it, use it every day, and have found it to be stable and of high quality.
