    Thumbnails in preview pane

    carlettag

      To avoid other people using Vista + 64-bit + IE8 a two-days research, when pdf thumbnails don't display in Explorer preview pane:

      1. Download and install MSDN Preview Handler from: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/12/21/free-download-vista-and-office-2007-preview-handl er-pack-to-support-more-file-types/ (may require a Java installation).

      2.  Download PreviewConfig.exe from: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/PreviewConfig.shtml and check that .pdf is associated with MsdnMag.PdfPreviewHandler.

      Done!

          Good advice, but a bit brief.

           

          pdf shows:

           

          Preview Handler information:

          GUID        : {DC6EFB56-9CFA-464D-8880-44885D7DC193}
          Description : Adobe PDF Preview Handler for Vista
          Module name :
          Localserver :

          Note: Preview Handler is registered on the file extension (.pdf)

           

          What shoud we enter?
