Hi there.. very bad problem with vista64 upgrades.. PSD thumbnail view is broken again.
There is this fix about for getting it to work in 32bit environments but it dose not work on vista64. PSD Thumbnail Support in Explorer x32bit
in this thread tehre is a fix for xp64 i thought might work but i do not undserstand it or how to do it....
Mabey someone could explain?
I think the problem is that the DLL is 32bit and vista64 needs 64bit stuff for shell extensions.
This is the code for the 64bit FIX.. apparently... if someone could explain it?
To get this to work in XP64, you need to change not only the paths to point to program files (x86), but also place the registry entries in a slightly different place so that they work properly.
This is the PS reg file, you can edit the AI reg file to do the same thing. Basically, put Wow6432Node before any and all CLSID references:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@=”Photoshop Icon Handler”
@=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Common Files\\Adobe\\Shell\\PSICON.DLL”
Or if you know of an alternative fix i would be very happy. I do not mind if it uses some kind of 3rd party app.. as long as the icons are visible in thumbnail view in explorer.
Cheer i hope someone can help.
