I wish to add WP&FW to another application as a plug-in but can't find the .exe file with a 'search'.

Anyone any ideas.

Cheers

I think its a dll file not an exe file.

Hi Speedy Gonzales

Thanks for the info but i can't seem to get the application to run the 'rundll32.exe' or the associated 'shimvw.dll' file that goes with it. These two files were mentioned on the site you linked to.

Tks
Gary

I would say it cant be added in as a plugin into anything.

What program are you trying to add it to?

Hi

I am using a program called Ashampoo Photo Commander that has a drop-down menu allowing external programs to be opened from the open application. I currently have Photoshop on the list and would like to add WP&FW.

Cheers

Nah dont think it'll work, unless u somehow add it thru the Ashampoo entry in the registry.

Most probably because it needs rundll and its a dll file. Not an exe file.

Or contact Ashampoo, and see if they can help u out.

It'd be better if u use Irfanview, since that supports plugins.
