• Image Viewer in Windows 7?
    20 replies, posted
Am I missing something? Where is it? I see a program called "imaging and devices" but I get errors whenever I try to open it with an image file. I just want a simple image viewer, that i can navigate to other images in my folder using the arrow keys, like the old image view that came with WinXP did. It sucks having to use firefox to view images on my computer. Well that or waiting for Adobe Photoshop to take a minute to load.
You might be interested in Google's Picasa program, I find it to be a very nice program that loads quickly
Is in a DLL file, it isn't an application.
Irfanview is pretty good

Irfanview can open almost ANY image file out there and is very good at batch converting. It's cut and dry and mostly everything is done through menus. In contrast, Picasa is extremely user friendly and is easy to use. It's also much prettier. Both programs are small, fast, and easy to use. It wouldn't hurt to install both to see which one you like better.
Well I mean, I don't want editing capabilities or anything like that, and I really want it to be able to be able to navigate images in a folder using the arrow keys or something so I can just flick throw pictures in my folder at the push of a button like the standard windows image viewer. Where is this dll file? I mean, my computer doesn't know what to do with images at all, the only options I have are to open them in firefox or photoshop, which isn't practical for standard organized viewing a batch of images.

I don't have "windows photo viewer" as an option. Where is the dll stored? My OS is set up to have the default program installation location look at one partition, while the OS is installed on a seperate partition. Sometimes old bookmarks the OS installed by default can get confused by this and think the OS is installed on my "default programs" partition, instead of the c:/ drive which is where the OS is installed to.

How would I use that DLL though? I can't really open it, windows doesn't know what to do with the file.
[QUOTE=KorJax;17837944]How would I use that DLL though? I can't really open it, windows doesn't know what to do with the file.[/QUOTE] Probably have to use the registry to do that. I never used the DLL to launch it. Then again I never had to as I leave the programs files where it should go. You could search Neowin, they had a topic on this recently.
Isn't Windows Photo Gallery installed by default in Windows 7?
You get it from here: [url]http://download.live.com/wlmail[/url] Microsoft removed a whole load of stuff so users could customise. Just spent an hour sorting out the email so I could use the client from vista

if you bothered to click on link and look what it comes with on the right under download, then you would see it says: Programs you can download include: Messenger Mail Writer Photo Gallery Movie Maker Family Safety Toolbar All these programs come with it and so then you can choose what you want to and what you don't want to install

I was just teasing. Hence the ":P". No need to be an elitist asshat with your "if you had bothered" statement.
Couldn't you use rundll32 Photoviewer.dll,(entrypoint), filename to launch it?
meh, I don't get sarcasm :P
Managed to get Windows Photoviewer to work. I just had to change the "ProgramW3264Dir" location in the registry back to my C:/ drive instead of it being to my other drive that I actually install programs to. I guess that key is what windows looks at to find the location of it's default programs. The ProgramFilesDir key still points to my other drive.
