View Full Version : Windows Picture & Fax Viewer

14-07-2005, 04:41 PM
Page 82 of July issue tells how to put a shortcut for this. All goes well until I after I get to finish typing in the rundll etc. in the shortcut wizard, clicking on next it tells me it cannot find what I just typed. I cannot find Windows Picture and Fax Viewer anywhere on the computer. I am using a Compaq Pressario R3211AP Laptop with Windows Xp Home. It came with software pre-installed But I have discs. Tried finding Viewer on discs no help. Does someone have a solution? Is there a typing error in what we are told to type in? I note that there is a comma between (dll,ImageView) where I expected a full stop.
Thanks for any help.

Just tried it here, it works fine.

You need a space after run32dll.exe at the beginning, its not showing because of the line wrapping in the column. Otherwise the computer cannot understand that the "run32dll.exe" command is complete.

Many thanks Godfather that worked. :) Got to change the icon too. Went to click on the icon and launch Picture & Fax viewer from quick launch bar. It did not launch! instead a message came up about attempting to launch an Application extension (.dll) and wanted to know what it should open with. At 70 I am getting too old for this! :confused:

Have solution to my problem on being unable to open Picture and Fax viewer after I changed the Icon. I got the message I was attempting to launch an Application Extension (.dll) and wanted to know what it should open with? I clicked on open with as I had done before but then did not know what too choose. On close investigation this time when I did it again I found a Picture and Fax viewer Icon and chose it. I then clicked on the icon I had chosen before and the viewer opened and said "No preview available, I dragged an image file into it and all is well. Hope this helps someone else, andthanks for help received.
